Dr. Altherr's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Altherr "I have been practicing orthodontics since 2002 and also practiced dentistry for two years prior to that. My dental experience has instilled the importance of overall oral health and how orthodontics affects the mouth, jaws, and even the total body health. I have a greater understanding for my patients' needs because of this experience and can provide each patient with the customized treatment plan that works best for them. One of the best parts of my job is building lasting relationships with the people in our community. I work with people of all ages, and I love watching the kids grow and the adult patients get the beautiful smiles they deserve. It's always rewarding to me to run into patients and parents in the community and to see their beautiful, healthy smiles. I know that my patients come to me to attain healthy, beautiful smiles, but they also want a positive and comfortable orthodontic experience. My wonderful staff is very outgoing and welcoming to each patient, and I am lucky to work with such talented and caring people. All of us love what we do and really care about our patients!"
