This 4yo Mexican-American female arrived with her mom for her first checkup ever. She was a bit nervous so she sat on her moms lap during the visit. Her mom held back the child's lips while I snapped the pictures. I think this young lady is one of my favorite pictures that I've taken to date.


PS:  Sorry my posts are so brief I taking it easy for the summer but come on you gotta admit the pics are still pretty good without all the extra blah blah blah..

This gentleman came to the office because he hadn't seen a dentist for a really long time.  He ended up needing a SRP and he was a really good sport when people came over to see what all the fuse was about.  The general dentist also had the oral surgeon come over and take a look.  The oral surgeon did a quick intraoral exam and said that the exostosis were ok but he said it was the largest he had seen in all his years of practice.
