Never Too Old

I had a very nice senior patient come in last month. She had a broken crown on her front tooth and wanted it "fixed." As I was discussing the treatment with her for that one tooth, she asked if I could do anything to make her other front teeth look better. I told her what different treatments we could do for her and she surprised me when she wanted not only her crown replaced but also another five veneers to improve her smile. We finished the treatment and about two weeks later I received this nice note,

Dear Dr. Moretta,
I am loving my new smile! Thank you very much for giving me a look I never expected to have - certainly not at 80. Looking forward to the smiling years ahead.
Sincerely, Diane.

So remember, it is never too late to improve yourself.
