“I love being an orthodontist. I am often the first point of contact for many of my patients to learn about orthodontics. Because of this, I strive to explain things in a straightforward, comprehensive manner so patients and families are fully informed about their care. One of the best parts about being an orthodontist is that the treatment I provide leads to improved confidence and amazing smiles! Seeing someone’s eyes light up when they see their new smile for the first time is amazing. Today, I enjoy working with husband, Dr. Ross Pulver, to improve patient's smiles using today’s most innovative orthodontic solutions and technologies. "
