Meet Dr. Patrick Holmes

“There is no greater joy for me than giving someone the smile of their dreams. Nothing beats seeing a patient leave with a confident genuine smile. The blend of art and science in orthodontics is what always attracted me to this profession. Being able to provide a cosmetic service to our patients while also giving them a healthy functional bite is incredibly rewarding.” – Dr. Holmes
