Start Smiling Dental Implant Center is the BEST place to go for any type of cosmetic dental work. Three years ago I had missing teeth, failed implants and had gone to several cosmetic dentists who told me I could not be helped. By the time I found Dr. Paul At Start Smiling, I had given up hope. Dr. Paul examined my teeth and took x-rays. He told me my case would be a piece of cake. It was! Thanks to Dr. Paul and his amazing staff, I have the most beautiful smile! I highly recommend Dr. Paul and Start Smiling to make your dreams come true!

Dr. Paul is the best. I had a great experience with him and his staff during my implant procedure. I am sure I will be very happy with the final work after my bridge is set in place over the implants. So far, very happy with everything.

Dr. Paul and his staff are absolutely amazing. I had a butcher of a dentist as a child that carried onto multiple complications throughout my adulthood. Dr. Paul took his time explaining my procedure and what to expect and also was very clear about the healing process and really gave me hope how much better I would be after treatment. All the chronic infections and pain are gone, I can finally eat without pain and I now actually smile with my teeth when someone takes a picture instead of just my lips. It’s really life-changing. Thank you, Dr. Paul, thank you for caring, listening, teaching, and your patience. I’m very grateful for what you have done for the quality of my life.
