Meet Expert Orthodontist
Board-Certified Doctor Greg Ross, DMD, MDS
A smile can give someone the confidence and self-esteem to excel in life. This is what I love about being an orthodontist—it allows me to positively impact people’s lives. I approach each day with great enthusiasm and I’m thankful to have a career that I’m passionate about.
I was born and raised in Miami and attended Palmetto for both middle and high school. I’m grateful that I can serve the community that I grew up in, creating beautiful smiles for generations of South Florida families.
Creating a beautiful smile takes time, and I truly value the relationships we build with our patients during treatment. I love the journey of transforming each smile and watching the personalities of our patients blossom throughout treatment.
