Meet Dr. Nicholas Booth

“Orthodontics is a unique and multifaceted profession that provides the opportunity not only to create healthy, beautiful smiles but it also gives me the chance to be role model for my patients and the community. Early on in my education/athletic career, it was impressed upon me the importance of attention-to-detail and striving for excellence. The influence of those individuals has had a profound effect on my career. It is my commitment to give the Verde Valley community the smile and confidence they deserve but also develop relationships that will inspire those to maximize their potential.” – Dr. Nicholas Booth
