“I consider it a true honor and privilege to provide orthodontic care to the Somerset and Columbia communities. I am very passionate about what I do and really enjoy seeing the positive effect that I have on the lives of those I serve. I love being able to provide this service and having seen so many individuals who are embarrassed of their smile gain confidence after treatment. I have no doubts about the incredible difference we can make on someone’s life just by helping them achieve the smile they deserve.” — Dr. Ryan N. Brown
