A Beautiful Smile: What Are You Waiting For?

Your smile is the first thing that someone sees when they come in contact with you—what does yours convey about you?

You look in the mirror every day and shake your head. You think, wow, I wish I had a nicer smile.

So—what are you waiting for? I see so many patients who come into my practice with problems that, if treated earlier, would have been simple fixes. Many people have different reasons for not having regular preventative care. Finances, potential discomfort, no time, and past bad experiences are all excuses for not scheduling that first appointment.

Good news—all of your excuses have a solution. If finances are the reason, there are no-interest financing options available in most practices. If the fear of pain is your excuse, there are sedation options available. If time is the reason, many offices have evening and Saturday appointments available.

Past bad experiences can be turned around into great experiences simply by finding the best practitioner that you feel comfortable with and who understands and is sensitive to your needs.

An initial consultation appointment may be your best solution in easing back into dental treatment and is a great way to get to know the office and staff in order to help calm those nerves.

Our office offers complimentary consultations to give patients an idea of what treatment options are available and approximate cost of needed treatment. Excuses are easier to make than that first phone call to schedule an appointment. What are you waiting for? That smile looking back at you in the mirror is not gonna change unless you make it change.

Your smile is the first thing most people notice when you meet them. What does yours say about you?
