As an orthodontist, I am humbled to have the opportunity to make a difference in people’s lives. I feel it is a gift to be able to provide care to an individual and know the service I offer can deliver long-term, life-changing results. I truly enjoy the relationships I form with my patients and the journey we take, together, as we transform their smiles.
— Dr. Rothe
Dr. Rothe has practiced orthodontics for 18 years. She grew up helping in her father’s dental practice, seeing the relationships he formed as he cared for his patients, and how his profession allowed him to help others.
By the time she was in high school, Dr. Rothe knew she wanted to provide healthcare services of some sort. After attending a presentation on forensic dentistry, she realized the field was the perfect combination of two of her greatest interests: art and science.
In dental school, she was drawn to the orthodontic specialty. Beyond the science and art of orthodontics, she appreciated the time it gave for her to develop connections with patients.
For Dr. Rothe, orthodontics is a means of serving others, and helping people feel confident in their smiles!
