I love practicing orthodontics because it allows me to become part of my patients’ lives. I enjoy watching them play baseball or sing in a school play. I get to know the parents as their children come in for treatment over the years. I’m a people person and this is a great field for me. Being part of the Lake Zurich community has given my life meaning far beyond just practicing orthodontics.” – Dr. Foley
