“The best part of orthodontics is the ability it gives me to engender confidence and create value in my patients’ smiles and appearance. Orthodontic treatment will not only create a beautiful and engaging smile, but also modify facial structures and growth. Due to the aesthetic nature of orthodontic treatment, a more positive self-perception ensues and the individual grows as a whole. Because orthodontic treatment takes time, it allows me to get to know my patients on both a personal and professional level, thus creating fulfilling, long-term relationships with both patients and their families.” — Dr. Ryan Hinckley
