"Being an orthodontist is absolutely my dream job, and I feel so grateful to be returning to the greater Pittsburgh area to create beautiful smiles at Purvis Orthodontics. Getting to know my patients and their families is one of my favorite parts of what I do. I believe in treating my patients like family and look forward to delivering exceptional patient care all while having fun. There is so much value in a confident smile – and I am honored to play a role in each of our patient’s smile stories."
