Gayla was sipping an organic iced coffee as she strolled down Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington DC, contemplating her lifelong problem with stains. Whether spaghetti sauce on white shirts or the remnants of caffeinated drinks on teeth, stains bothered her deeply. Coffee. Stains. Teeth. That's when, walking by the White House?home to a Texan President at the time?she realized: everything's bigger in Texas, so why shouldn't that be true of their stains? She decided then to open an organic teeth-whitening spa in Austin. After her epiphany, Gayla gathered a team of beauty consultants, customer-service representatives, operations officers, and business consultants and opened My Texas Smile. She and her team pool their individual talents to brighten smiles for up to 12 months without using harsh chemicals.
