Orthodontists should do much more than straighten
people's teeth. A mission statement or objective that I
ascribe to in my practice is as follows: Dr. Hersh and his
staff are committed to enhancing the quality of life for
those people who choose to come to us for their
orthodontic health care. This includes excellence in our
Nelson Hersh DDS, MS
orthodontic results. Equally 'as important we are
Licensed Specialist
committed to the creation of an environment that is
open, friendly and a fun place to be. When someone
leaves our office, we want him or her to feel better about themselves. We treat
every child as if they were our own. We are honored and privileged to be able to
enhance one's life.

It is important to remember that this applies to both children and adults even
though our practice is 85% children. We feel successful in our treatment, when
our patient smiles more, is happier and has greater confidence and self-esteem.
This is illustrated by the following short story. We had a young lady who at 11 or
12 was not happy or smiling very often. We were able to be positive influence
upon her life and she at the conclusion of orthodontists was an extroverted,
happy, smiling person. She unfortunately passed away but her parents told me
that her last few years were very happy, and that she frequently commented that
her smile was one of her assets, and she enjoyed smiling and was truly happy.

A plaque was placed in my office that reads "A hundred years from now it will
not matter what ones bank account was, the sort of house one lived in, or the
kind of car driven...but the world may be a better place and different because I,
or you were important in the life of a child.
