I fell in love with orthodontics four years ago. I love this field, because I get to see transformations from start to finish. We are smile enhancers. Catch me chilling with my one eye cat Fettywop in my spare time.
While working here at Wilmington Orthodontics I´ve learned so much about how unique each smile is and how we can help our patients achieve their own perfect smile. One fun fact about me is that I know how to Irish Stepdance! Carch me in St. Patty´s day jigging it up!
I have been working at the Wilmington orthodontic center for the last two years and I love being a part of the smile transformations. I love the dental field and I am studying to become a dental hygienist. During my free time, I run after my energetic little boy.
Trish has 16 plus wonderful years in orthodontics. She started in general dentistry but, quickly fell in love with orthodontics and have been doing it ever since. Our patients are like family to her and she love being a part of the process to create the smile they have always wanted.
What I love about working in the Orthodontic field is that orthodontic treatment has a direct and positive impact in the lives of our patients. Improving smiles grows patients confidence and allow them to share their smile more often.
