"Making people smile is my passion. Having the opportunity to work with so many unique personalities through my practice is a blessing that I am very thankful for. I love that I can use my expertise to give people confidence, and most of all, I love to make people smile." – Dr. Austin Rahaim

He is always available to patients and parents to answer questions about treatments and the progress being made.
