Out & About: A Glimpse into Dr. Burgstahler's Free Time

Beyond her commitment to crafting beautiful smiles and (lovingly) reminding patients about their rubber bands, Dr. Burgstahler immerses herself in the vibrant Portland community. Her free time is spent exploring the city's numerous parks, perfecting the art of pie dough, and indulging in her guilty pleasures—an "inadvisable" amount of boba tea and exquisite jams. Her multifaceted interests and dedication to patient care truly set her apart in the world of orthodontics.
