With her patients, Dr. Swift is known for her caring and educational approach, her ability to listen to each patient’s desires, for involving each patient in the development of their own unique treatment plan, and for her customized smile creations that optimize each patient’s facial bone structure and personality. Dr. Swift builds smiles that not only are contagious but that are designed to last. Without a good foundation a smile, just like a house, will not last as long as it should, so Dr. Swift makes sure that both oral health and teeth alignment is optimized before cosmetic work is placed so each patient’s return on investment in their smile is maximized.
