Michael’s teeth were removed one by one over the years until all were missing. Out of fear, he never had dentures made. He grew a long and wide mustache to hide the fact that he had no teeth. He never smiled. He ate only soft foods. But recently he learned that he had a sister living in Europe whom he had never met. He was anxious to meet her through skype but he was embarrassed that he had no teeth. He contacted me and we sat down to talk. He was excited to begin the process of getting dentures (implants were not an option for health and financial reasons.) We scheduled four appointments over four weeks and we delivered his new dentures on time. He couldn’t have been happier! The dentures were very tight – almost difficult to remove. They were comfortable – he wore them all day and he said that he didn’t know he had anything foreign in his mouth. He was amazed at all he could eat and that he could taste food again. He was so appreciative that he wrote me a lovely review in Google:
“From my first appointment which was about five appointments ago I can tell you by far Dr. Shapiro is the best Dentist you would ever meet. Doctor Shapiro and her staff Linda & May are extremely professional. My first impression – I was excited to find such a technically up-to-date Dentist. Before my first visit was over it was clear to me Doctor Shapiro and her staff not only possess superb dentistry skills. They understand patients’ needs which (in addition to doing a great job on my teeth) they provide really well. The information they provide and the way it is communicated is so comforting. Scheduling appointments and billing was easy and well thought-out. I have to tell you the truth. I never dreamed in a million years that I would be saying these words but after my first appointment I said to my wife “I am looking forward to next week’s dental appointment”. I want to thank Doctor Shapiro, May and Linda for all that they have done but for now all I can do is smile.” Michael Serrano
Dentistry is a wonderful profession. How often does a person get the chance to change someone’s life?
