“Many of my patients think that braces and tooth alignment is only about a great looking smile. Orthodontics includes this, but an attractive smile is also a healthy smile. My goal is to provide all of my patients with optimal dental health and the fortunate benefit that their smiles will look terrific.” – Dr. B
Patient testimonial: “You will not find a better orthodontist than Dr. Bockow. She treated my three daughters who are as cowardly with doctors as the cowardly lion! She set them right at ease. They LOVE her! She is very intelligent and did an impressive job with each of them. I am sad that she is no longer on the east coast! My daughters had complex cases and she managed to do a top notch quality job with keeping them at great ease. She made them each feel equally special and confident in themselves and in her! They trust her. The Seattle area is lucky to have her.”
