During a recent tour of our office Rosanna told me that her first trip to the dentist came when she was 16 years old. But when her own son came along, she made it a priority to get Zachary into the dentist at an early age. It was on that first trip to the dentist that Zachary and his mom were joined on the elevator by and elderly man. Zachary was holding his mom’s hand and gazing up at the stranger when the man’s face broke into a broad toothless smile. It was a timely encounter, and a visage with lingering impact. Lesson learned: “This is what happens when you don’t take care of your teeth!”
The older I get the more I give thanks for the career path I faithfully followed.
In dental school I was trained to be a rather skilled tooth technician. I could examine a tooth, identify disease when it was present and provide a complete list of options available for the restoration of that tooth to health. In the school of life I’ve learned that there are people behind those mouths, people that often have joys and concerns that go much deeper than the diagnosis of dental caries and periodontal disease.
No matter where you stand on the spectrum of dental health, we have time for your story and the expertise to maintain or restore your smile.
