A Love for Creating Smiles
I love having the opportunity, every day, to improve the lives of my patients. By correcting bites and creating a beautiful smile, I ensure patients have stronger oral health and greater self-esteem.
My father is an orthodontist. Since I was in high school, I knew I wanted to do what he does. He inspires me, especially seeing his patients being thrilled with their new smiles. I truly love my career, and thrive when I am able to help my patients to smile with confidence.
I sincerely believe I am in one of the best professions in the world. Every day I have the opportunity to meet unique, wonderful people. I enjoy fascinating conversations and am constantly learning, all while making a lasting, positive difference in each person’s life. — Dr. Nelson Diaz
