Dr. Crouse's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Crouse "Being an orthodontist means helping people solve their functional bite issues and improving smiles at the same time. I love how every patient is different and know each deserves a unique care plan in order to achieve their best smile. I strive to attain perfect results for each patient through individual care plans. I love watching my patients change and grow throughout treatment. As they see the changes in their smile, their confidence increases and they become more outgoing. This is true with my youngest patients and my oldest: each person’s self-esteem blossoms and, by the end of treatment, they are transformed! I personally check every patient’s progress at every visit. Not only do I want to stay on top of every decision and detail in their care, but I want to get to know each person and their family. Excellent, open communication with my patients and families is essential. I need to understand their expectations and for them to understand the treatment plan and their responsibilities. The best day for me is the day I remove a patient’s braces: that’s when tears of happiness and hugs are shared. Together, we’ve achieved an incredible, lasting smile!— Dr. Ulla Crouse EDUCATION AND CONTINUING EDUCATION Doctorate of Dental Surgery – University of Kuopio, Finland Certificate in orthodontics – University of Kentucky Doctorate in physiology – University of Kentucky Dr. Crouse is a part-time faculty member in the University of Michigan’s Department of Orthodontics.
