“As each patient is unique, an orthodontist must not only utilize acquired knowledge and skills, but also must draw upon innovation and creativity to effectively plan and treat orthodontic challenges. This aspect of orthodontics continues to thrill me.
“It is also fulfilling to witness how the kids and teenagers grow up and how I can make them happier and more confident by giving them the smile they deserve. When I see my patients after several years and we look at their old pictures together, I love to see their big smile and surprised faces as they acknowledge again how orthodontic treatment has been able to improve their smile and make a difference in their lives.
“My goal is to build trust with my patients. My top priority is to offer personalized and professional advice when it comes to the dental care of my patients. I take my job and commitment to all of my patients very seriously.” — Dr. Roozbeh Rashed
