When I see that Sharp Smile wishes me a Happy Birthday today. I realized how far I've come from the smile they donated to me after a severe assaults. 8 of my teeth were destroyed, on top, in front. Dr. Sharp and his staff treated me with dignity and kindness and fixed my smile. I wasn't going outside, I was traumatized... My family, and friends. My granddaughter told me I had a pretty smile after they were finished and tears streamed down my face. Thank you! Dr. Sharp you changed my life. Forever Grateful!

Dr Sharp exudes warmth and caring and inspires confidence. He was a wonderful listener about both my immediate needs and where I hoped my future smile would be. I felt very much at ease throughout our visit... The facility itself is very nice and homey. And every person I interacted with was warm and personable. I am really looking forward to working with the Sharp Smile Center team to get my smile back! My experience so far has been a 10 out of 10. I'm sure I'll have more positive things to say as the work is performed.
