What others say about us
I was a little fuzzy when leaving the office yesterday and it was a couple of hours later when I really looked in the mirror.
Your good and careful work has made a remarkable improvement in the appearance of those bottom teeth. I could hardly believe it, and now will not be so conscious when smiling.
When Mike saw me there in the waiting room he said “Oh, Delores, that is so good”. And, the inside feels very smooth – after all these years!
Thank you for all the excellent work you have done, your kind consideration and your friendship.
