Upland orthodontist Gray and Ehrler - six pillars of characterAt Gray and Ehrler Orthodontic Specialists, we strive to set a good example for our patients. We believe in the following six pillars of character:

  1. Trustworthiness
    Always tell the truth and be honest. By being accountable for your actions and striving to do the right thing, others will find it easy to place their trust in you.
  2. Respect
    Value other people, their opinions and their differences. Be mindful of others’ feelings, and try to resolve conflict in a peaceful way.
  3. Responsibility 
    Always follow through with what you’ve agreed to do. Do everything with your best effort. Be an upstanding person, and be a good example for others.
  4. Fairness
    Don’t cheat – always play by the rules. Never jump to conclusions and blame others hastily.
  5. Caring
    Always be nice to others, and show them that you are concerned about them. Be forgiving and always show your gratitude.
  6. Citizenship
    Stay up-to-date with what is happening in your community, and volunteer to make it better. Abide by the laws of your community and respect the authority. Strive to improve the environment.
