This patient’s testimonial
The First Dentist To LISTEN!
“Dear Dr. Winter,
I can’t tell you how much you have changed my life! I was depressed and had so much pain in my life that I didn’t know where to turn.
I saw several doctors and they all told me they couldn’t do anything for me except make me dentures. You were the first dentist to “listen” to me. You not only gave me all of my options but you came to all of my surgeries. I feel like I have my life back. I can eat and chew without pain and I can smile all the time–without pain!
Thank you for everything you have done. I was at the deepest depression of my life and now I am enjoying my life to the fullest. My implant reconstruction was amazing and I wish I had done it many years ago.”
