Orthodontic treatment made a profound difference in my life, and I knew from a young age that I wanted to bring about that change in others.
Just as every patient has a unique personality, every patient has a unique smile and a unique story to tell. Seeing the evolution of a person’s teeth over the course of treatment is often mirrored by a change in their personality. A lot of patients start treatment feeling timid and shy and during treatment they gain confidence and open up. By the end of their time with us, they have a radiant, beautiful smile – and we have learned everything about their lives.
It is very rewarding to get to know each patient, personally and to build a real relationship with them. The reveal of a gorgeous smile at the end of treatment is the cherry on top!

Education and Experience
When Dr. Becker was young, She was very shy and reserved due to the way her teeth looked. The orthodontic treatment gave her hope. When she finished her time in braces, she had such a boost in her self-esteem that she was ready to conquer the world! Most kids dream of being an astronaut, or a professional athlete. Dr. Becker dreamed of becoming an orthodontist and feels very fortunate that she was able to realize her dreams and do exactly what she hoped to do!
Dr. Becker graduated from Emory University, where she received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish. She then attended the University of Texas School of Dentistry at Houston, where she graduated at the top of her class and was awarded her Doctorate of Dental Surgery (DDS). Next came her Certificate of Orthodontics and Masters of Science in Dentistry (MSD), both awarded by Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine.
As an orthodontist, Dr. Becker is dedicated to providing each patient with high-quality clinical treatment, tailored to their individual needs and expectations. She oversees each step of treatment: from treatment planning to positioning each bracket to planning and setting-up every aligner treatment.
