Ellen Crosby: The most satisfying part of my job is seeing patients leave with a smile on their face, very happy with the job that we do.
Cami Carter: The patients that have received cosmetic treatment, they have beautiful smiles.
Eric Jackson: When somebody walks into the room, it’s just a natural smile. They can light up a room just by smiling with their teeth and it’s just pretty awesome.
Tonya Parks: There have been several situations where it’s been life-changing.
Pam Henson: Oh yeah. I mean one of our patients, she’s lost weight and she’s fixed herself up and just feels so good about herself.
Cami Carter: We have a patient that it really changed his whole personality, made him a lot more friendly and outgoing.
Tonya Parks: It’s totally just changed the way they see their self.
Eric Jackson: Seeing patients come out of here happy and healthy. Especially when you’ve had somebody that’s been sick and they go through the process of removing amalgam. Or you see them months down the road and they’re healthy and walking and smiling, it feels good to your heart.
Danielle V.: You get to be with them through the whole process of getting a brand new smile. Usually, in the end, there’s always a lot of tears, just because the outcome is wonderful. It can get pretty emotional. I’m not one to cry, but for some reason every time we change someone’s smile it gets to me.
Ellen Crosby: I mean it warms your heart to know that we did that for somebody.
Pam Henson: As she was going out and another patient happened to come up and we had fixed her smile as well. They were comparing their smiles and it was so fun to see that and see the joy in their faces. That’s what it’s all about, just helping people and making them feel good.
Danielle V.: It’s a wonderful feeling that we get to fulfill for other people.
Betsy Welch: We work really hard to make the patients feel comfortable and confident in their treatment. We always want to answer questions.
Danielle V.: We have music, television. There’s always the option of nitrous oxide just to help with any anxiety and there’s also sedation.
Betsy Welch: We want them to understand why they’re having the work done and how it’s going to benefit them in the future.
Danielle V.: We love getting to know patients when they come through the door.
Pam Henson: Because so many places you go, it’s like you’re a number, well they’re not to us.
Danielle V.: From the second they walk in, they can grab some coffee or tea.
Betsy Welch: I really love people and I enjoy each and every patient that comes in.
Pam Henson: We know them by name. I just love to catch up with them. We know the families, their trips. They’re just an important part of who we are.
