“For me, orthodontics changes more than the appearance of a smile, it enhances self-esteem; it gives one self-confidence, and it makes one look and feel better. I enjoy being able to get to know my patients. It is very fulfilling to see the children grow into young adults. It is the best job in the world!” – Dr. Priscila Denny
