She is one of only a few dentists locally working in the emerging field of pediatric dentistry called Orthotropics®, (or Facial Growth Guidance).
This is a treatment that redirects growth of the mid and lower face to a more ideal direction, converting “unfavorable” vertical growth to “favorable” horizontal growth . This is healthier for the child.
