Through her own orthodontic experience, Dr. Mahoney realized the impact orthodontics can have on someone's life. Her new smile boosted her self-confidence and allowed her to be more outgoing. From the young age of ten, she was inspired to become an orthodontist so she could have that same effect on others. She never gave up on that dream, as she is now proud to be a part of a profession that is the perfect blend of art and science. Dr. Mahoney is eager to bring out the beauty in her patient's smiles, while providing personalized care and individually tailored treatment plans.
