The Story

Orthodontics has always been a fascinating blend of biomechanics, art, and healthcare for Dr. Santucci. When coupled with the ability to work with people of all ages, helping to shape their confidence, it was a profession that he knew from early on that he would pursue. In fact, Dr. Santucci’s first orthodontic training program was at Hullings Orthodontics, where he studied under Dr. Jon Hullings and worked alongside the team as an intern. It was always the plan to come home to Wichita and join what he considers the best practice in town.
