Dr. Christopher Maulik feels it is truly an honor to be trusted with the smiles of his patients. He is thankful to be able to help children and adults gain self-confidence while creating beautiful healthy smiles. For him, bringing together thoughtful planning and analysis and blending the creativity of art is extremely rewarding.
Being an orthodontist also allows Dr. Maulik to build relationships with patients that can span generations. He loves watching kids in their formative years as an elementary or middle school student grow up into young adults in college and beyond. The best compliment he receives is when former patients bring in their own children, and he gets to start the smile-creating journey all over again!
