As a native of Clarendon, Jamaica, I am committed to serving Jamaica and our community of Mandeville with the best possible orthodontic care. My passion for meeting people and making a positive impact on their lives is evident in everything I do. I am very caring and compassionate, and I have a great connection with my patients. I am also an attorney-at-law and certified mediator.
Before starting Mandeville Orthodontics, I received many years of education and training. In order to keep up with the latest technologies and give my patients the most up-to-date care possible, I am involved in continuing education.
