“My profession has given me an opportunity to give people the smile they deserve. It’s very rewarding to be an orthodontist. Working with a great team of professionals makes it enjoyable to come to work. Empowering our team to make sure they do what they can to make the patient happy has made our patients’ experience special. Knowing that we are involved in improving the days of so many people puts a smile on my face.” – Dr. Desai

Dr. Shyam Desai is a board-certified orthodontist and has been providing his patients with the most advanced and comprehensive orthodontic care since 2008. He enjoys providing quality orthodontic care to patients of all ages. His extensive training and years of experience have given him a strong understanding of diagnosis, treatment planning, biomechanics, and biomaterials, allowing him to provide each patient with the high standard of care they come to expect and deserve. He finds great joy in helping his patients achieve and maintain beautiful, healthy smiles that boost their self-esteem and will give them greater self-confidence for a lifetime.
