“When I was younger, I had buck teeth with a huge gap between my front teeth. I was made fun of and was always embarrassed to smile. I was very self-conscious about my teeth and even avoided interpersonal interactions. In 4th grade my parents took me to the orthodontist and it changed my life. The office was warm and friendly, not like a typical doctor’s office I had always been afraid of. My gap was closed within weeks and I loved my smile! My new smile gave me so much confidence…I knew then and there that orthodontics was my passion.”
In order to provide superior service and comprehensive results, Dr. Terrana is committed to staying at the forefront of orthodontic science by attending numerous continuing education courses. He stays current with the latest orthodontic research and techniques to straighten teeth as quickly and effectively as possible. His continuing education includes multiple online courses and weekend seminars. He is always on the lookout for new ways to improve the comfort and efficiency of his patients’ orthodontic experience.
“My goal is to help everyone who is self-conscious about their smile achieve the smile of their dreams.”
