Meet Dr. Ortega

Dedication, Passion, Commitment ...

“My work in orthodontics is one of the greatest treasures in my life. I feel so fortunate and appreciative to have found my passion through changing the lives of others. Being able to provide life-changing results to my patients, while bringing together the best of education, science, and health, is a wondrous experience, and one that I am so grateful to be part of.

“As a leader in my community, I truly value the relationships I build every day. One of the most rewarding aspects of my work is the connections I develop with my patients through the progress of their care. The day-to-day interactions that I am so fortunate to have with them is dear to me, and it brings me happiness making everyone feel at home and part of the growing family that is BellaSmiles Orthodontics.

“As a mother of two beautiful daughters, I am able to see treatment though the eyes of our patients, as well as their families. I design every orthodontic treatment to satisfy each individual’s needs and expectations. My goal is to ensure that your orthodontic treatment is a truly positive, life-changing experience and one you will always remember. My team and I at BellaSmiles Orthodontics look forward to meeting you and giving you the beautiful smile you have always dreamed of. Ultimately, at BellaSmile Orthodontics, I am committed to changing the world one smile at a time!”
