Meet Dr. Meandro
“My profession allows me to provide a service that impacts patients’ lives in a positive way, providing them with the self-confidence that comes from a beautiful smile. I thoroughly enjoy providing the highest quality orthodontic care to our patients and will go the extra mile to make certain all our patients are well taken care of. At the end of the day, I love the feeling of knowing our office has made our patients and their parents feel better about themselves and realize that they are special.
Since I first visited my orthodontist as a teenager, I realized that orthodontics would be my career and I have never looked back. Now, 26 years later, I still look forward to going into the office each and every morning knowing that I will be helping improve my patients’ lives, one smile at a time.”
