On Being an Orthodontist
“I am proud to say I am an orthodontist. I can see the positive changes I make in people’s lives when they smile, and it makes me happy when people leave my office happy with the care they’ve received and the results we’ve achieved together.
“I’m passionate about helping people. I joined the oral healthcare field because I enjoy making a difference in people’s lives, and being an orthodontist allows me to do that, every day. My patients become my friends, and I am honored by those friendships.” — Dr. Philip D. Bomeli
As an orthodontist, Dr. Bomeli is focused on delivering personal care to each person who comes to his practice. He works with individuals to find the treatment processes that work with their lifestyle, goals, and clinical requirements, never dictating a certain path. Instead, he educates the person about the various processes and encourages them to be an active participant in deciding their treatment.
