It's a joke among dentists that they often practice on roller skates. If you asked any patient about this, they might look at you funny, but then when given time to think, be able to relay a story about sitting in the dental chair for 2 hours just to get a simple filling done. They will tell you about how the dentist was only in the room for about 20 minutes and might not have even introduced themselves. They will also tell you about how many times the dentist had to get up to go do something with another patient. Sound familiar? There is a more personalized, better way.

Teeth play a vital role in our everyday lives. They are individual units of our smile, and studies show that the smile is often the first thing people notice about others. What does your smile say about you? When you laugh, do you worry about what others will think of your teeth? Do you hide your smile because you are embarrassed about the appearance of your teeth? Do your teeth show how hard the years have been?
