Changing Smiles and Changing Lives

"The most rewarding part of my job is when patients say, 'Thanks for giving me back my smile.' Sometimes this is because we corrected an aesthetic issue and they look better so they smile more. Other times it’s because we’ve gotten them out of pain. Either way, nothing makes me happier then to see a patient of mine smile." - Dave Watkins, D.M.D.
