Why He Became an Orthodontist
Dr. Alkhoury decided to become an orthodontist after seeing firsthand how orthodontics can help someone way beyond changing the position of their teeth.

Dr. Alkhoury wanted to be able to do this for other people, which set him down his career path. Today, he couldn’t be happier with his decision!
