Dr. Botsford, DMD, MSD
What a privilege it is to be able to work with so many wonderful patients and help craft them smiles that they are proud of! I feel incredibly grateful to be in a profession that I absolutely love. There is nothing more rewarding than feeling like I am truly making a difference in the lives of those in my community, including children, adults and everyone in between! Orthodontics is about so much more than a beautiful smile. It’s what that smile can do- helping individuals build their confidence and self-esteem to excel in other aspects of their lives- that is so meaningful to me. My goal as an orthodontist is to help each of my patients achieve beautifully aligned teeth, balanced facial esthetics and a functional bite through careful diagnosis and customized treatment planning. I am passionate about building long-lasting relationships throughout treatment and beyond and look forward to the opportunity to serve you!

Outside of the office, you can find Dr. Botsford spending time with her family. She and her husband, Paul, a southern Oregon native, have an energetic one year old, Tate, and a chocolate lab, Hobbes, who both keep them on their toes! Together, they love to spend time outdoors, whether it’s taking a relaxing walk in their neighborhood, enjoying a concert at the Britt, or rafting and camping along the Lower Rogue River. She is thrilled to call southern Oregon her new home and looks forward to all the adventures to come!
