Kristin Horman, DDS
“I enjoy the relationships with my patients—getting to know them more personally,” says Dr. Horman, whose practice focuses on orthodontics. “I also enjoy the positive outcome and well-being that a patient experiences after treatment. Particularly with orthodontics, I enjoy seeing the change that occurs as the problems begin to resolve and the patient gets to experience better function and a beautiful smile.”
Dr. Horman strongly believes in a patient’s right to choose what they feel is the best treatment for their particular situation. “In order for them to make good decisions, they need to be educated about their options,” she says. “I do my very best to communicate to them the information they need to make the right decision. Ultimately it is their smile, and they should have the opportunity to decide what is best for them.
“Nothing gives me more pleasure than when a patient is happy with their teeth and is proud to flash a big smile! I am also very aware that a great deal of anxiety is associated with visiting the dentist. I truly care, and I strive to make each patient’s visit as pleasant and pain-free as I possibly can.”
In her spare time, Dr. Horman enjoys spending time with family and friends, traveling, and cooking. She supports charitable organizations in general but strongly believes in providing support to the charities and organizations that service the local community.
