Meet Dr. Megan Fried
A Passion for Creating Beautiful Smiles
Dr. Fried is passionate about creating a positive experience for each and every patient while providing them with excellent orthodontic care. Not only does Dr. Fried love creating beautiful smiles, but she also believes in creating a result that is stable and allows the patient to function comfortably.
It is of the utmost importance to Dr. Fried that each patient feels comfortable at every appointment and has the opportunity to learn about their treatment. She is dedicated to ensuring that each patient feels heard and that their main concerns and goals of treatment are known. After a thorough review, a treatment plan specific to each patient is created and discussed in detail.
Ever since middle school, Dr. Fried has always loved smiles and knew she wanted to have a career in dentistry. What drew her to orthodontics was the ability to have such a positive effect on a patient’s life and self-confidence. She loves seeing the transformation of a patient’s smile as treatment progresses and how much of an impact this can have with patients. Creating a beautiful smile for patients to have for all of life’s milestones is what brings Dr. Fried great joy as an orthodontist!
