After experiencing braces twice, once as a child and once as an adult, Dr. Swiderski is familiar with both the struggles and successes of orthodontic treatment and wants to help everyone achieve the smile theyve dreamed of. My favorite part of orthodontics is solving the puzzle, she tells us. Everyones case is unique, depending on their dentition, skeletal relationship, airway and many other components. It's essential to take all those parts and design a treatment plan and a timeline that leads to success for each individual.Outside of orthodontics, Dr. Swiderski can be found playing ice hockey, making Tik-Toks with friends and family, or exploring Arkansas behind the lens of her camera.
