My name's Vicki. I came to Dr. Wall because my teeth looked terrible; they were yellow, they were cracked, they were chipped, they were short. I have a career where I'm in front of a lot of people all day long, and I was finding myself doing this all the time. I was very self-conscious. I'm a real estate broker, so I am in front of people all day long. They have to trust me, and they have to know that I take an interest in what they're trying to do with this investment or their first home. If I'm not smiling and taking an interest in them, they're not going to trust me. A smile's really critical for what I do. I came to Dr. Wall and talked to him about this. It wasn't even just the teeth; he looked at my whole personality and what I do for a living, he took an interest in that, and figured out a way to just brighten my smile, put the veneers in, and teach me to smile again and be confident with myself again. When I look at my 'before' picture, I feel as if I look a lot older, a lot more depressed, down, unapproachable. When I look at my 'after' picture, I'm smiling, I'm more vibrant. My whole face is different; my whole attitude is different, because of the smile. I only had four veneers put in; I didn't have to have my entire mouth put in. Dr. Wall was able to just do it with the 4 veneers, and it made all the difference in the world. What I love most about Dr. Wall's office is you come in and his whole team, they meet you as if you're the most important patient that just walked in the door. Their attitude is unbelievable. They know you by name, they know what you do, they remember you, they ask about you. Then when you go back to meet with the rest of the team, it's the same thing; they act as if they're glad to see you, they're glad you're here. I think what's unique about Dr. Wall's office; it's one of the few, if not only, dental offices that I know that you actually walk out feeling better than when you walk in. I would highly recommend Dr. Wall and his team to any of my friends or family members. I have because they're genuine, they're honest, they know you, they care about you. It isn't just about teeth, it's the whole package. They want to know that your whole lifestyle is enhanced by what they do, and it comes across very strongly that they really care about you. They go to a deeper level, a greater length, to make that happen for you.
