We have had several patients share their hesitancy to have cosmetic dentistry: it seems selfish or they feel like they need to care of others first. We have heard similar expressions from those have completed treatment as they regret waiting as long as they did. We certainly understand those sentiments! Sometimes it is very hard to put ourselves first.

Let me share a story of Yvonne, in her own words:

“As I got older I noticed my smile changing in pictures and realized that I never smiled—in fact, I was covering it up with a smirk instead. I had a Trial Smile and saw what my new smile would look like. All I could say over and over again was WOW! Dr. Stafford is the most patient, artistic Cosmetic Dentist in the Northwest, and honestly, this has been life-changing for me!”
