I want them to have the quality of care they can appreciate and that I would expect for myself or my family. That’s why I try to stay current with the latest findings in the field of cosmetic dentistry.” Cosmetic dentistry is much more than white teeth but rather about healthy form and function including posture and facial contours as well as – Neuromuscular Doctor Chicago – physiologic health.
