Meet Michael S. Geric, DMD, MS
I have been an orthodontist for 22 years and continue to be amazed by our wonderful patients and parents who are committed to achieving healthy, beautiful smiles. I am more excited about the practice of orthodontics today than ever before. We have so many new, more effective ways to move teeth and perfect smiles in less time with less discomfort. I do what I love. Putting a great smile on your face is what keeps me smiling – inside and out. - Dr. Michael Geric
