My answer when people ask me “if you were to win a million dollars, what would you do?” was always, “I get my teeth done.”
It seemed like an unattainable goal, something bigger than a mountain, something that could never happen. I am 49 years old and I’ve had horrible horrible teeth my whole life…one big tooth front and center and sideways bulldog teeth to support it…truly delightful!
They hurt everyday when I chew and I couldn’t even bite into an apple they caused my great pain. While I refuse to let them define me, they certainly didn’t suit my personality. I am bubbly and positive and I smile a lot to everyone but whenever I smiled there’s always that knowledge they’re looking at my teeth everybody is looking at my crazy teeth.
So why didn’t I just get them fixed…well,
I am horrendous wimp when it comes to my teeth. I whine, cry, and squirm…avoid, avoid, avoid! I am terrified that’s why I go to Dr. Harry Hoedinio. I have never enjoyed the dentist before Dr. Harry’s clinic. They seem to make all the fear go away, they make it okay.
They calm me down, they freeze me for cleanings (Thank you Cheryl), the rooms are incredible, they have all the latest bells and whistles…TVs to distract and cameras to educate me, squirrels playing in the amazing yard, but the best part of MY dentist are the people.
I challenge everyone to find a more accommodating, educated, personable group of professionals – you can, trust this coward, you really can. The assistants are outstanding. From walking in the door Kathy makes you feel so welcome, it’s like coming home to people who care.
Krista – you are definitely my favorite assistant – she has such an amazing spirit. I am never nervous. Dr. Harry and Helen, I love you both and am forever in your debt. For all that you have done and continue to do thank you. The Simply Clear Invisalign changed my life forever. After so many years of fear and procrastination…what was I waiting for?
I’m going to be 50 this year and I now have the teeth of a movie star, and in no time (9 months) or pain at all. I never would have ever dreamed this would have been possible, my results are outstanding. I keep running my tongue over the top of my top teeth! I worry I’m going to wake up from some dream and my single tooth will still be in the middle of my head – this is simply too good to be true.
I wake up and I smile at the mirror everyday and I happily brush them and I leave the house and I smile at everybody there and get into work and I smile at everybody there my cheeks hurt I’m smiling so much.
So, for anyone reading this long winded superlative – what are you waiting for? Just do it! You will be so happy you did!
Review from me…Thank you all!
