From Our Editors
When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
When I was younger, I loved how my mother’s beautiful smile could make everything better. When she passed away, I made it my mission to help others achieve this same unforgettable smile. I want to give my patients back both their confidence and health by providing them with a way to look their best.
Researches have shown that crooked teeth retain plaque (the mixing of food build-up with bacteria in the mouth), more easily. This can then unfortunately lead to gum disease, which has been proven to cause diabetes, heart attacks, and even premature births.
On the cosmetic side, people with better looking teeth are more confident. Having missing teeth, a gummy smile, in which lots of gum shows when you smile, dark or stained teeth, and severely crooked teeth can make people very self-conscious. At Stella Dental Care our talented dentists are able to give patients back their confidence. I love helping people feel better about themselves. The most rewarding experience for me is when my patients smile at me because I just gave them something to smile about.
The interior of a business can affect how its customers feel. What kind of decor do you use to help make your patients feel pampered and at ease?
Stella Dental Care is a modern dental office which uses high quality state-of-the-art equipment including advance sterilization, digital x-rays, intra-oral cameras, and a hi-tech teeth whitening process. The interior is filled with calming green walls, polished porcelain floors and beautiful large windows. We create a serene atmosphere where you can escape your busy schedule and relax while receiving the dental services you require. We have a kids' play area with giant teddy bears, a private whitening room, as well as TVs in all rooms so patients can watch any show or movie while receiving treatment. Along with our soothing and calming decor we also can provide nitrous oxide (or laughing gas) for our especially anxious patients!
What is one fun, unusual fact about your business?
One fun fact about Stella Dental Care is that we have grass inside ... in the kids' play area, of course. We also have a Nintendo Wii to provide further entertainment, so that parents can get their treatments while their kids play in a safe and fun environment. Along with entertainment for kids we provide access to a computer with internet in the lobby for all patients to use. We want to treat everyone as if they were an extension of our family, and we are more than happy to go above and beyond to provide an environment they will enjoy while they are in our care.
Anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
We chose Stella Dental Care as the name for our practice because Stella means "star" in Latin. Our slogan is “Stella Dental Care: Where you are the Star!" We want to treat all our patients like stars and give them the individual attention they deserve so that they walk out of our office happy, healthy, and with a beautiful smile.
