My teeth were bad. I had numerous broken teeth, a couple missing from the front. I always grew my facial hair to cover everything, and I would do things like dye my hair, and I never had trimmed facial hair to hide it because I liked to smile when I deal with the public. I was self-conscious about it. I haven’t had a steak in twenty years because
I was always afraid of breaking more teeth. I think ultimately we know it’s going to catch up with us, but we still put it to the back of our mind because we always find something else to spend our money on. I had a tooth ache for three weeks, and I knew there was an issue. I had to get it addressed, so I went to Aspen Dental. It was probably the single most enjoyable office visit I’ve ever had. The biggest thing is the judgment-free environment. They didn’t say “your teeth got this way because you are such a horrible person,” which I’ve heard before. So I went along with the plan that they designed for me, and I do not regret it in the least. It was done a week before my vacation. I went on vacation. I had the best vacation I’ve had in years. I felt physically better, emotionally better. It was probably the highlight of my year. I went home, looked in the bathroom mirror and cried because for once in my life, I had a smile to be proud of. If you’re having dental issues, go. Get yourself checked out. They are wonderful.
