Sarah understands the fear and challenges that arise around orthodontics and how to address them. Sarah’s back story is probably not that different to yours so we thought we’d share it here to show just how real she is. Having trained as a dentist, Sarah felt there had to be something more. It was only after experiencing her own orthodontic journey to straighter teeth (they look great, don’t they?!) that she made the leap to more study and became an orthodontist.
“I know what it’s like to have a smile you don’t feel good about. I went through my teens and part of my twenties dealing with it because I didn’t think braces were cool. But something changed in me when I realised I could feel better.
Between my own study and my direct experience of having braces later in life, I came to appreciate the real value of quality orthodontic treatment. I realised it can transform lives. People often comment about my smile and it makes me feel great. And that’s what I love doing for the people I work with. It’s why I became an orthodontist.
Since having my teeth straightened, I can honestly say my life has been different. It is so satisfying to be able to do that for other people now.
It doesn’t matter if my patients are kids, teens, or grown ups. I take time to listen and really show I understand. Now as a mum with two kids with teeth needing orthodontic treatment, I know there’s a lot involved in just getting to appointments. It’s a constant juggling act.
Yes, I’m an orthodontist, but more than that, I see myself as being able to work with my patients to feel better about themselves and life. I love it”
What does this mean?
It means Sarah gets you.
She understand exactly how her patients feel because she’s just like them. She’s been where you are now. Sarah has developed the Specialty Orthodontic 5-Step process that walks patients through every aspect of their orthodontic treatment journey. Because she’s able to get into the heads of her patients.
