Life Smiles Family Dentistry
Wouldn't you like to walk into a room full of your family and friends with a huge smile on your face because you know you look great? Wouldn't you like to go to your 20th high school reunion knowing you are going to knock'em dead with a beautiful smile? How about celebrating your 40th, 50th, or 60th birthday or a significant wedding anniversary by treating yourself to a smile makeover?
Everyone knows that a beautiful smile radiates confidence and can improve one's self esteem. Wouldn't you like to feel better about yourself? A beautiful smile can change a whole personality. Wouldn't you like to shed your shyness? A beautiful smile can improve your relationships. What does a smile mean to your loved one?
Having the opportunity to improve your quality of life by putting life back into your smile is truly an honor and a privilege. It was for this reason that I became involved in the dental field over 20 years ago. My desire to restore smiles began with my own personal experience. My orthodontist had a profound affect on my personality as he changed me from a girl with picket fence teeth (I sucked my thumb until I was eight years old) to a beautiful young lady with perfectly straight teeth. What a phenomenal change! I was so grateful for how he improved my appearance that it molded me into the person I am today. Unfortunately, orthodontics cannot fix every problem, but dentistry, in the majority, can. That is why I want to be able to give to you what was given to me - confidence, strength, and the courage to be the person you were truly meant to be.
