Helping my patients achieve their ideal smile can positively impact their lives and is extremely rewarding. With ALTA SMILES, I’m able to provide patients ‘a higher level of orthodontics’ with high-tech equipment, a variety of treatments for children and adults, and a collaborative team approach.”– Dr. Freedman
