Mixing Science & Art To Give You The Perfect Smile

Passionate About Making Beautiful Smiles

“I absolutely love what I do. I feel like orthodontics is a perfect mix of science and art. It’s social, it’s scientific, it’s artistic and it’s fun. I don’t feel like I’m coming to work every day. I honestly feel like I’m going to just do what I love.”
– Dr. Manika Agarwal
