Smiles in Malibu
When smilers want to wear their best-possible grins, they call Dr. Bob Perkins at Smiles in Malibu. In addition to general dentistry, he's an expert in cosmetic treatments, including implant and orthodontic dentistry. Dental aesthetics are Dr. Perkins' passion. In fact, busy though he is—he's also a family man and a skateboarder—he can't even sit down to watch television without thinking about his work. After catching the 2011 season of NBC's The Biggest Loser, he contacted contestant Sunny Sinclair and offered to perfect her smile. Sunny and Dr. Perkins tracked the treatments with their cameras. The resulting film captures Dr. Perkin's artful eye, personal bedside manner, and wealth of experience—not to mention his office's comforts, which include sedation dentistry and mink dental bibs.
