“This time last year, I requested Dr. Esi to close my gap at age 40. I'm proud to say a year later my gaps are closed….Thanks Dr. Ejiro Esi for providing me a new beginning at 40 which has been a booster to my self esteem.” Jenny B
I am passionate about creating beautiful, healthy smiles.
I love educating my patients about the benefits of orthodontics, and specifically how orthodontics can improve their smile and their overall health. I am excited when a patient who is apprehensive about treatment gives me a chance to show them how orthodontics can change their lives. I love it when they begin to see the changes that are occurring during the course of treatment and begin to smile at how amazing orthodontics is.
The true reward is when a patient who never wanted to smile tells me how they can’t stop smiling now that they have beautiful straight teeth. There is nothing more fulfilling than being able to transform a patient’s life, improving their self-confidence and self-esteem, by simply changing their smile.
