  • I became an orthodontist because of the influence of my uncle, Dr. Bucky Colarusso. He was a doctor of early treatment.
  • My uncle’s influence made me realize that one could derive considerable joy from treating patients well beyond merely their teeth.
  • Orthodontists can have a profound impact on patients’ lives. That’s what attracted me to the profession.
