ABOUT HODGE ORTHO
MEET DR. HODGE
While attending dental school, I knew early on that I wanted to specialize in orthodontics. I loved the science behind it and I really enjoy developing long-lasting relationships with patients and their families.. My passion led me to an extra three years of education beyond dental school, completing a residency program in Orthodontics as well as a Masters in Oral Sciences.
I love being an orthodontist. The best part of my job is getting to know my patients and their families. Since orthodontic treatment is, by nature, longer than other dental treatments and it requires periodic visits I have the unique opportunity to develop a personal relationship with my patients. I like to use the time we spend together to educate them about their oral health and help them develop a great sense of appreciation for their teeth and gums. My goal is to help everybody get the beautiful smile they have always wanted as well as learn how to take care of it so that it will last them a lifetime.
In 2017, I started Hodge Orthodontics with the goal of creating a space where everybody feels welcomed and where I can offer excellent orthodontic care for kids, teenagers and adults. At Hodge orthodontics, we want our patients to enjoy their orthodontics journey as much as we enjoy seeing the transformation in their smiles.
