MANAGER OF A LOCAL BUSINESS
"Before I went to Dr. Painter, I didn't smile very much . . . They were very enjoyable visits. They took very good care of me . . . I look and feel ten years younger. Friends and family mention that I look terrific when I smile. My smile is very bright. Now that i have more confidence, I interact with people better. I look forward to everyday because I feel good about myself."
RETIRED BUSINESS OWNER
"Very professional, but it was like going home and visiting a friend rather than going in to have your teeth cleaned or dental work done on them . . . particularly professional people have noticed and commented on my teeth and how nice they look and ask where I had them done. I'm always very pleased to tell them that [Dr. Painter] is my dentist. When I do smile, I know that it's going to be beautiful."
