“To me, dentistry means making a difference. It’s not only about appearance and making the patient feel good about themselves; it’s also about being proactive and creating the best oral health and overall health. Every patient is different and each story I listen to influences my life in some way. You find out so many good life lessons if you just sit back and take the time to listen.” – Dr. Guernsey
