She also takes up hobbies that open up her creativity and mind such as drawing, hiking and occasionally watching up to an hour of Netflix. Dr. Glants’s Dental Philosophy: “ Oftentimes, treating a particular problem in isolation is warranted, but I strive to assess the patient’s whole health and tailor a treatment plan to fit their goals and lifestyle. Creating proper teeth alignment is the best preventive treatment that will ensure a healthy bite and tooth longevity along with increased self-esteem.”
