AAO Infographic

  • More than one-third of American adults are unhappy with their smiles
  • Of Americans who are unhappy with the appearance of their teeth, 36 percent believe they would have a better social life if they had better teeth
  • 78 percent of Americans perceive adults with crooked teeth to be unsuccessful
  • 14 percent of those unhappy with their teeth felt they might be missing out on a better job

So what are you waiting for?  Schedule your complimentary consultation with Dr. Page and Dr. Condict to discuss your aesthetic treatment options for a beautiful, healthy smile today!

Or if you are staying home send us a postcard or post a picture on facebook so we can see how you spent your week off!  Just because you didn’t go anywhere doesn’t mean you shouldn’t win a prize!!!:)
