“Great looking teeth for an old lady.” That’s what I said when the doc and crew at Couchman Center for Complete Dentistry asked me what I wanted from my dental work. I missed out on orthodontics when I was young. My parents couldn’t afford it. At least, that’s what I told people because it was less embarrassing to plead poverty than to admit I was too cowardly to face the metal. Then I started to get older. Numerous cavities, gum surgery, root canals, gold crowns, and crumbling teeth made me decide I’d better, as Lady Macbeth so aptly put it, ‘screw my courage to the sticking place.’ That and the nightmares I’d started having about Tracy Ullman’s character Kay calling her mother to ask, “Have you brushed you tooth yet?”
To my relief, I discovered that the good people at the Couchman practice suffer cowards gladly and very kindly. They set to work correcting first a bad bite and then using Invisalign braces to move the crooked teeth that were making it virtually impossible for me to keep my teeth completely clean. And never once was anyone less than compassionate and professional. I don’t think they let mean people work there.
Seventeen Invisalign trays later, I got to see the results of my quest for great teeth for an old lady. Frankly, I have to say it didn’t work. I didn’t get great teeth for an old lady. I got great teeth for anybody. So, eat your heart out Miss America, and on to the talent portion!
My sincere thanks to Dr. Couchman, Jill, Laura, Karla, Julie, and all the other great folks at the Couchman Center. You guys rock and I look forward to having you to help me keep my new mouth in top shape. Now, all I have to worry about is excess laugh lines from too much smiling. Oh well…
Thank you Dr. Couchman,
You and your staff are just the very best!
Blessings and God's favor be yours.
