  • The first thing you must do is go to the dentist. Not just every now and again when something hurts or breaks but on a regular basis. Once or twice a year is a minimum. My regular patients rarely have major disasters.
  • People neglect their teeth for all sorts of reasons. While cost is often given as the reason, fear, time and embarrassment are just as common.
  • Bad teeth are embarrassing for many people. Over the years I have watched people get a new lease on life from having a smile make-over.
