As children, we all have heroes. These individuals are people
we look up to and want to be like when we're older. My hero
was my dad, Tom. I was always amazed at how many people
he knew, and how many people knew him. He never met a
stranger. People would always say things like, "Your dad is so
happy. He is always smiling! Is he ever angry?" That was my
dad, smiling Tom. I wanted to be like him.
However, while growing up, I was never comfortable with my
smile. My teeth were crooked and as I grew older, they began
to erode and decay. It was only until I met Dr. Brian Dunlap
that I realized I could do something about it. I was hesitant at first, but Dr. Dunlap and his staff
made me feel comfortable. I learned that I could have this procedure to protect my teeth as well
as improve my smile. I couldn't be happier with my decision. I only wish I had met Dr. Dunlap
earlier in my life. Now when I see my dad, his smile remains the same. I wear mine more than I did
before. Thank you Dr Dunlap for bringing out a little more of my dad in me.
