I just love my new veneers! Before my veneers, I was self-conscious about my smile. I didn’t like taking pictures up close at all because of my gaps. I never liked when someone would snap a random picture of my laughing or something, because my gaps to me were so noticeable. Jim, our lab guy, did such an amazing job on my new veneers. You can’t even tell that they are veneers! The match perfectly! Dr. Todd was awesome; he made me feel comfortable and excited for my new smile. I couldn’t be happier with them. Now I smile a lot more, and I don’t feel self-conscious about my smile. Never in my life, I thought I could have a beautiful smile. Thank you Dr. Todd, Jim, and Heather for making my smile perfect. =]
Leticia decided to do 6 month smiles (adult braces) because she wanted to fix one tooth that was making her self conscious about her smile.
As she said,
I wouldn’t smile as much and I love to smile and laugh. It was just sad. In photos I would smile with my mouth closed, but not anymore. I love it and am so excited.
According to Leticia, a friend of hers didn’t even realize she had braces on until a week ago.
At Sala Family Dentistry, we have a patient, Daniel “Danny” Clark who is quite special to us. He has been a patient since 1974 and has always done his treatment, paid his bills, etc. He is a joy to be around and loves to smile.
Five years ago Danny was diagnosed with an immune system disease, Sjornd’s Syndrome, which causes severe dry mouth that has eaten away at his teeth. We have been trying for 3 years to get his medical insurance to pay because it is a medical condition and despite our several appeals, they have continued to deny coverage.
In December, Danny was selected to be the next *Sala Star.
As Danny put it best,
“I am so happy that people actually see me for who I am now. I have my smile back and I love to smile. I want to express my gratitude to everyone in the office for helping me. We can’t express the happiness you have given us.”
Thank you Danny for always putting a smile on our face in the office! We are lucky to have 3 generations of Clark family members as patients.
*Sala Stars are members of our community nominated by our patients to receive complimentary dental care!
As a child, Justin didn’t have the opportunity to have proper dental care and as a result had a “less than perfect smile,” as he describes it. He came to Sala Family Dentistry asking for some advice on how to fix an abscessed tooth that caused him great pain.
It was then that Dr.’s Jason and Todd gave Justin what he describes as, “his greatest gift.” They offered to fix his smile. As Justin says, “I have never been given a gift like that. Something for your health is a priceless gift and the fact that they wanted nothing in return shows you how generous they are. It really gives you hope in humanity again.”
Justin has continued to “Pay it forward” by creating videos, for a local restaurant, to help raise awareness of the homeless in Reno. Last year he also produced a video and built an entire website for the No Tahoe Biomass Plant Movement. With his help, the plans to build a biomass burning facility just a few blocks away from an elementary school in Kings Beach were cancelled.
According to Justin, “I had a life changing opportunity by an amazing office. These are some of the nicest people I have ever met from start to finish. Plus their work is top notch.” More than anything, Justin is excited to show off his new smile at his wedding in September!
