Another happy smile...

"I am very appreciative of the dental work Dr. Conner and his staff did for me. My 50th birthday present to myself was to make over my smile and now I feel good about myself everyday when I look in the mirror. Every time someone asks me about the changes in my smile I tell them to go see Dr.Conner over on Rt 10. I always recommend Dr. Conner to my family and friends."
