This content was provided by Dr. Tucker "My profession comes with a responsibility to provide the best care I can every day to all my patients. I also have the opportunity to try to deliver results which meet or exceed expectations. It is an honor to be trusted with improving a person's smile, which is a precious asset. This will be my 28th year practicing orthodontics, and I still truly love what I do. A nice smile can change a person's whole demeanor, improve self–confidence, and simply make someone a happier person. It's hard to be happy without smiling, and it's hard to smile if you're unhappy with your smile. I see many patients who feel uncomfortable smiling at the initial consultation. The purpose of my job is to change this, helping each patient acquire a smile they are truly proud of at the completion of treatment. Helping someone attain a healthy, happy smile is always rewarding, and it is the reason I come to work each day. EDUCATION AND CONTINUING EDUCATION For my orthodontic education, I attained the following educational certificates: American Board of Orthodontics Board Certified Undergraduate degree, New York University DDS and Orthodontic Graduate Program, NYU College of Dentistry Dental Residency Program, Eastman Dental Center, University of Rochester I attend continuing education courses to stay current with the latest orthodontic treatment to ensure I am providing the best care possible for my patients.
