I am John, and I've been employed at Kalamazoo Orthodontics as an orthodontic technician since the summer of 2002 when I moved to Michigan. It's always great to see patients end-up with wonderful smiles! One of the best things about working in this field is experiencing the advances in orthodontics over the years (many originating right here in our practice!). We have a great team here at Kalamazoo Orthodontics and I'm proud to be a part of it. For example, I took the lead for the incorporation of our KaVo diode soft tissue laser.

I am not a native Michigander as I was born and raised in Galesburg (the Illinois version). I do like the Kalamazoo area much better though. But since I came from Illini country, I'm still a big-time University of Illinois basketball fan. Outside of our practice, I am a member of the Kalamazoo Jaycees and I enjoy doing work in the community with that group.
