Dr. Kenneth M. Hrechka, DDS

Orthodontics | Male

I am a native of Canada but became a naturalized American in 1979. I am married to Kathy and have a daughter Julia and son Michael. In my free time I enjoy helping my children with their school work, cub-scout activities and helping my son improve at chess. I am also an avid exhibition rose gardener and am presently involved in the Arlington Rose Foundation and the Potomac Rose Society. I grow approximately 140 large rose plants and 85 mini and mini-flora plants. My greatest success has been with miniature and mini-flora varieties, although on several occasions I have often won the best climber, best hybrid tea spray and most fragrant hybrid tea. There is a great deal to learn to grow good roses. I guess it compares to orthodontics in that I try to manipulate "mother nature" with both disciplines.Read more
