“After 35 plus years of making beautiful healthy smiles, I still love sharing this wonderful smile journey with beloved patients. Clear communication is critical to the success of any endeavour and all my patients have an after hours cell number for anything that may come up with their orthodontic treatment. I believe that the (orthodontic) journey should be as awesome and meaningful as the destination- a gorgeous healthy smile with straight teeth.
My wife, Barbara, and I have raised 6 kids and travel back and forth between Toronto and Winnipeg where my 95 year old dad and 92 year old mom live independently. One of our favourite things is having our twin granddaughters for a sleepover or really any activity with them. When a parent brings in their children to us we understand that sacred trust and feel honoured to get to be a part of that family’s orthodontic journey.
