What Sets us Apart?
Dr. Whitney Mostafiz went the extra mile to become a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics. This means that cases that she treated were peer-reviewed and that she had to take a written as well as oral exam about orthdontic diagnosis and treatment. Less than one-third of orthodontists receive this distinction. Being Board-Certified is the highest level of professional achievement and is a testiment to Dr. Whitney's dedication to superior treatment outcomes in her orthodontic cases.
Dr. Whitney remembers the first moment she became fixated on teeth when she was five (you'll have to ask her about that!). From a young age, she discovered an interest in dentistry and realized a love for orthodontics when undergoing her own orthodontic treatment. Dr. Whitney realized that orthodontics offers her an opportunity to bridge several things that she loves to do: to make people happy and healthy, to think like an artist and a doctor, and to be constantly innovative like a scientist. For these reasons, Dr. Whitney is sure to offer you exceptional care and hopes that her passion may rub off on you, too!
Fun fact: Dr. Whitney dreamed to be an orthodontist since she was 12!
