Marilyn Amaral, DDS
“Some people know what they will be when they grow up! I was not one of them, but in my early twenties after having orthodontic treatment and having many compliments regarding my smile, I realized that I wanted to create them myself and give people of all ages the confidence of a healthy and beautiful smile. It has been and continues to be a wonderful journey. I love my work!”
