Dentist in Chesapeake
I didn't realize the problems I had with my teeth. Until I came to see Dr. Brown. I had been making a subconscious effort for many years to hide my smile. The treatment I received totally changed my appearance. I get compliments all the time. I definitely feel that this has been a benefit to me, personally and professionally.

I love my job! As an assistant I enjoy providing patients answers about their dental health and making them feel at ease. It makes me happy when patients feel better about themselves.
