Makenna is an ambitious student, athlete and leader. Makenna's plans include college with continued education in orthodontics. This desire is where her aptitude and interest for technology join in helping children obtain self-assurance, confidence and dental health. Makenna plans to leverage the latest technologies and sciences to perfect outcomes for her patients. Makenna's relatively early academic progression has not stopped her from excelling and being determined to be an accomplished professional.
