On Being an Orthodontist

Beginning with a patient’s first visit to her practice, Dr. Milberg strives to establish open lines of communication, forming a bond with the person.

So she constantly works to keep each person excited about developing their new smile.
Dr. Milberg loves working with patients of all ages. Whether she’s watching children grow and mature into confident young adults, or helping an adult gain the smile they’ve dreamed about for years, she finds personal reward in helping others.
