Background Information


I was inspired to write my book “5 Steps to The Hollywood A-List Smile” mainly because there is a lack of dental information for consumers and patients to turn to when they have questions and need basic information in laymen’s terms. In my practice, I constantly get asked the same questions and I began to think that there was truly a need for this information to be tangible and put all in one place. When I wrote the book, I wanted it to be for the everyday hard working person who may have thought about improving their smile, but needed to get a little more info to see what their options are, how long it may take, pros and cons of certain procedures, and how much it may cost. I share a lot of tips and even got some of my celebrity clients and friends to tell their stories of how a new smile helped them. But what I want everybody to know in this book is that Hollywood smiles are not just reserved for rich and famous celebrities!  In the book I tell what the stars do to get their Hollywood A-List Smiles – then how to scout out ways to get it for a fraction of the price. 
In addition, I wrote “5 Steps to the Hollywood A-List Smile” because I was inspired to share my personal story about how changing my smile changed my life and actually made me want to become a dentist. I share how at the age of 15, improving my smile helped me gain confidence, improved my self esteem, and gave me the enthusiasm and energy to go on to pursue my dreams. I’m here to tell everyone that their smiles can change their lives too in ways that they never dreamed personally, socially, and help them in their careers.
