Dr Glants’s Dental Philosophy: “Often times, 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.”
When Dr. Glants is not doing what she loves; she is spending time with her niece whom she absolutely adores. 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.
