how dentists save marriages

You’re right; dentists are not in the relationship business. But every now and then there come situations where we play a pretty big role in saving them.

A couple of years ago we received a call from one of our patients. It was 3 days before his wedding and he had gotten himself into a sticky situation – he was missing half of one of his front teeth.

Normally this is an urgent situation that you want to make sure you get taken care of quickly, but for him it was especially important.

At the beginning of the week he had promised his fiancé that he wouldn’t do anything silly that week to hurt himself before their wedding – of course she wanted a picture perfect wedding, and this didn’t include black eyes and broken teeth.

But, as it turns out he had a hockey game. And he wasn’t one to let his team down. He also wasn’t one to wear a mask.

As luck would have it, this game happened to be the one where a stick got high and smacked him in the mouth (oh, he also didn’t have a mouth guard!!). He felt the crack right away, felt around with his tongue, and realized he’d broken a tooth.

So he gets off the ice and calls our office. After explaining the situation we get him in that day and fit him with a temporary crown.

He goes home, gets married, and doesn’t mention a word to his bride.

We’re pleased to say that he came back in after his honeymoon to get a permanent crown and is still happily married with a beautiful daughter!

And we’re not sure if he ever told her about his dental adventure…

Dear Patients,

We are pleased to WELCOME YOU BACK ! We are practicing SAFE DENTISTRY!

Rest assured that we have taken steps above what was required. After all, your health is our highest priority. We are finally OPEN and look forward to seeing you again soon!


  • When we speak with you regarding your appointment, we will be asking you additional screening questions. Patients who exhibit any symptoms will need to postpone their treatment.
  • When you arrive to your appointment, please wait in your car until your appointment time and bring as little as possible into the office with you.
  • If you have a mask or face covering, we encourage you to wear one to your appointment.
  • We will ask that you sanitize/wash your hands with soap and water upon entering the office and before leaving.
  • There will be a consent form for patients to sign upon arrival and we want you to know that the guidelines in place currently have staff member signing off on a daily consent that ensures they are ready and prepared to provide treatment in the safest possible way.

We want to assure everyone that our office takes the safety and health of our patients, their families, team members and doctors very seriously. Although our operations will be slightly different today than they were previously, we are excited to finally welcome you all back in a slow and safe manner.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time of transition to the new normal.

Your Dental Team
