According to Dr. Verduci, we are all unique individuals who require personalized attention.

This orthodontic experience involves all the members of the “Orthodontic Team” specifically: Dr. Verduci, his staff, the patient’s general dentist, the patient and most importantly the patient’s parents. Through hard work, determination and team effort beautiful smiles can be achieved and maintained for a lifetime.
