“I’ll never forget the day I was told by a dentist that the only solution to my situation was to pull my remaining 24 teeth and replace them with dentures. I was 55 at the time and horrified. I prudently decided on a second opinion and asked a friend for a referral. I was referred to Dr. Smith at Cody Dental Group. He told me that with my cooperation and the help of Dr Metcalf, periodontics and Dr. Reed, orthodontics, there was a good chance I could save my teeth. Dr. Smith informed me that this would entail a change in my habits that was essential. I am thrilled to say that Cody Dental exhibited a unique approach that has given me a wonderful success story. They believed that my problems were the result of various factors and the Group and I aggressively and successfully corrected the issues. The intelligent, unique problem-solving that Dr. Smith came up with, well, it gave me a smile back!
The staff and atmosphere created an atmosphere that embodied the generosity of the Group. I can honestly say this has been a wonderful experience for me that reinforces my belief that change and good will is alive and well!” – Melanie Ritter
