Hi! I’m Doc Ak and I love being an orthodontist.Smile-Enhancer, Physics nerd, Puzzle solver, Game changer: Some of the many hats that my profession enables me to wear on a daily basis. My love for orthodontics stems from the idea that I get to help my patients on an individual and often life-changing level. The transformation that I am privileged to witness in my patients is absolutely incredible: from their first visit where we get to talk about all their smile-related what ifs, through each visit where I get to view their confidence grow, to the day when the braces come off and I get to see my patients look at their ‘new’ smiles in the mirror for the first time, often with tears in their eyes. And I get to do that each and every single day, multiple times a day. Lucky doesn’t begin to describe what I feel.It means a whole lot to me that my patients trust me with their smiles and I take great pride in offering the highest quality of care using cutting-edge techniques while building strong, personal relationships. It’s a responsibility I take very seriously. It’s where the dedicated, hard working, professional in me meets the kind, caring, down-to-earth, all around do-gooder. It’s where I am my best and the happiest. And it’s why I wake up every morning feeling honored and privileged to have the opportunity to help create a beautiful smile for each of my patients.
