Aurora Sordelli, DDS, MSD
You only need to spend a few minutes with Dr. Aurora Sordelli to realize how passionate she is about her profession. She often says that she has the best job in the world. The daughter and granddaughter of dentists, she knew she wanted to be one from a very young age, and fell in love with orthodontics while being an orthodontic patient as a teenager.
Dr. Sordelli believes that in her profession she has the opportunity (and responsibility) of doing much more than straightening teeth. She strives every day to be a good role model to her young patients, and she loves to witness the blossoming that occurs in her patients as they gain more self-confidence. She likes to get to know her patients well, and she promotes healthy habits that will help keep their smiles in great shape for a lifetime.
Dr. Sordelli concentrates on the entire face, not just the teeth, and performs a detailed and comprehensive study on all of her patients so that she can tailor each treatment to her patient’s individual needs, taking into account the effects of aging on the face. This protocol ensures that her patients will look their very best. Dr. Sordelli has an autistic brother. She has a very special place in her heart for patients with autism and IDD.
