Dr. Williams' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Williams "My initial interest in orthodontics was sparked by my family dentist and orthodontist. My teeth were a mess and I was fascinated by the improvement in my smile as I went through treatment. It was and is exciting to me to see the impact a healthy smile has on one's self-esteem. I am honored by the trust each patient places in me, as they seek to improve their oral health and appearance. The most fun I get to have is the day we "uncover" the smile we have worked so hard, together, to create. I have been blessed to have practiced here in Desoto County for my entire career; I came to Southaven in 1983, when I began my orthodontic residence, and I fell in love with the community. In September 1985, I opened my own practice. During the last 30 years, I have forged so many rewarding relationships with my patients and their families. It gives me great joy to now be treating second-generation patients: children of the children I treated in the past."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Williams "It is a true privilege to be given the trust of my patients, to do something very personal for them. I never take that trust for granted. Because I make my living doing something I love, it feels as though I never have to go to work."
