I had surgery for immediate dentures on 21st November and I just have to say that Laura and Dr. Kent are amazing. I had absolutely no pain only a few tender spots and didn’t even need my prescribed pain medication! I read alot of horror stories on the internet and I would absolutely recommend going to The Smile Center if you choose to go through this process. Although these aren’t my final set of teeth, I can finally smile and not be ashamed of how I look! I have no doubt my finals will be even better! Thank you Dr. Kent and staff.
