“Being an orthodontist is a dream come true and every day I’m thankful to be able to do what I love to do. It’s an honor to be able to work with children, young adults, and adults on the Central Coast to help them achieve the smile they want and deserve. By improving how someone feels about themselves, that improvement in self-confidence can trickle down to every aspect of that person’s life and can help that person reach new heights.” – Dr. Lindsey
