Dr. Sun’s passion for orthodontics stems from personal experience. She had braces as a teenager, and once again in her late twenties. Now, she wears her retainers every night, and truly recognizes the importance of straight teeth, and appreciates the value of a beautiful smile. She practices orthodontics with this understanding in mind, and goes above and beyond to ensure total patient satisfaction. She is thrilled to be able to work closely with her patients, and to see the joy and confidence that shine through their smiles when they are finished with orthodontic treatment.
“I used to be too self-conscious to smile, and orthodontic treatment transformed my life. As a former patient of Dr. Sarpo, not only did he give me a beaming smile, but also confidence and pride. I am passionate about providing all my patients at Icon Orthodontics with smiles they can be proud of, and an exceptional orthodontic experience. Let your smile inspire!”
