Dr. Sheila Birth

Orthodontics is my passion. I believe it’s one of the best professions in the world, and I am honored to know that each day I am able to make a difference in someone’s life. Every smile is important to me, and I enjoy giving patients a beautiful smile that they can live with for the rest of their lives. Seeing the changes that my patients go through when they achieve a beautiful and functional smile is the reason I became an orthodontist.

Thanks to advances in technology, I am truly excited to be able to help patients with chronic headaches, migraines, tinnitus and vertigo. It is a joy to my team and me to be able to help these patients who may have been suffering from these symptoms for years or even decades. Our drug and needle free system has helped hundreds of patients literally change their lives and live pain free.
