"As one tries to age gracefully, body parts become worn and breakdown and such was the case with my teeth. I was at the baby teeth stage having ground them down throughout the years. I found that I had no smile and inwardly embarrassed about it. At any function, I tried my best to smile but really not comfortable.

Finally getting up the courage I reached out to the Kalaheo Dental Group for some answers to my baby teeth dilemma. Over the phone, I found a receptionist willing to help with my questions, giving me reliable and helpful answers. I made an appointment and found a wonderful, friendly staff to help me through the several processes of restoration.

I've completed my restoration and yes, it will take a little time to become comfortable with, but my proudest moment was taking a photo with my "hanai daughter” with my new pearly whites and a genuine smile.

I'm forever grateful to Dr. Lutwin and the outstanding staff at Kalaheo Dental Group for there time, effort and guidance for allowing me to truly smile, once again. It's a wonderful thing to be able to smile!"
