Gradient Background

Katherine Dove - 18 Extractions

“I came to the dentist needing 18 extractions. I had no confidence in my smile and was terrified. Dr. Thurston and his staff we're very caring people, professional, and compassionate. I now smile all the time, I've had no pain, confidence again, and there is nothing stoping me from life ahead of me"
