Smile Stories

“I am truly happy with the results.”

vicki mockA smile is one of our best assets. I didn’t realize how much people notice a smile until I had a “smile makeover”. I had several fillings in my front teeth and had to have them replaced every few years. Each time I had this procedure done, the fillings would get just a little larger. Now I don’t have to worry about that anymore.

I did quite a bit of research before calling Dr. Hodgins office and I’m glad I did. He is one of the most educated dentists in our area and keeps up-to-date with the latest techniques. Going to The Dentist Studio is like being with a family. Everyone associated with this office is friendly, courteous and can intelligently answer any questions you might have about any of the procedures, insurance or billing. Trust me, this is a very important issue as far as I am concerned.

It took me a while to make the decision to have a “smile makeover” but I am truly happy with the results.

“I Recommend Dr. Hodgins to Everyone”

“The extra special way I was treated was unlike any other experience I’ve ever had.”

Dear Dr Hodgins and staff,

bonnie prayI felt compelled to write and thank you for all that you’ve done for me. You have helped me realize a dream. My teeth were never pretty. They came in crooked when I was young, and I had a lot of problems with tooth decay. I was painfully shy as a teen and actually got made fun of and laughed at because of my teeth. My entire 18th and 19th year I had one of my front teeth missing. I learned not to smile, or to cover my mouth if I did. And alot of people thought I was just an unfriendly person.

There was one incident in particular that made me realize how my smile or even not smiling affected other people. I was expecting a package from my parents that was long overdue. Finally the UPS truck came up the driveway and I ran to the door hopeful. When I opened the door the deliveryman was smiling and handed me the pen to sign for it. Then I saw that it was the package from my parents and I couldn’t help it, I smiled and said thank you. His smile went away and I noticed he was looking at my teeth with my brown crooked smile and the big empty space where a tooth was supposed to be. He turned around and left. And I stood there feeling so horribly unattractive.

As I got older I was able to get bits and pieces of work done to help with my smile, but while it was better, it still wasn’t attractive. I learned to live with it and did gain some confidence in myself. I think meeting my fiancé was when I realized how beautiful a pretty white smile could be. And again how a smile could affect other people. But the pictures we would take together made me unhappy. When I realized the dramatic difference in our smiles I felt my confidence melting away and I started not smiling or covering my mouth again. Though I knew he loved me, I wanted my smile to give him the same feeling that his smile gave me. After watching ABC’s Extreme Makeover, I knew what I wanted to do. I started looking for a dentist that could do what I wanted to have done.
My fiancé actually came home one day with your web address and I was impressed with what I saw, and read. So I made an appointment. I have to tell you, I was impressed from the moment I walked in the door. Your staff is so friendly and knowledgeable and genuinely concerned that my butterflies almost went away! And it meant SO much to me that all of the follow up phone calls were made by you personally, Dr. Hodgins. I didn’t feel like just another patient. I felt like I was very important to you and that you were going to make sure I walked out of your office beautiful.

Through the temporary stage of my smile I was very happy with what I thought my teeth were going to look like, and found myself smiling and remembering I could take my hand away from my mouth. It felt pretty good. I was happy. I kept looking at my temporary smile in my car visor and when I’d pass a mirror. I really liked how it looked. Then came the day when I got my permanent smile. I knew, because you and your staff told me, that it was going to look better than the temporary smile. But I honestly wasn’t prepared for what I saw when you handed me the mirror! I don’t know how to put into words what it felt like to know that THAT was MY smile! And it was GORGEOUS! It really was one of the happiest moments of my life!

I look for opportunities now where I can smile! My mother even stopped me one day after I passed her in the hallway smiling, and told me how pretty I was. That’s never happened before! Now when my fiancé and I take pictures I can smile and feel proud of how I look. I have a new level of confidence in myself, that I’ve never had before. You and your staff are amazing. And I’m so thankful for everything you’ve done. The extra special way I was treated was unlike any other experience I’ve ever had. Thank you Dr. Hodgins! And please thank your wife and Jessica for me. They are both wonderful!
