Holidays

As the golden summer starts to slip away and the days grow shorter, we anxiously look forward to celebrations throughout the winter and fall. End of the year festivities give us an opportunity to reconnect with family and friends, some of whom we haven’t seen in years. We feast, laugh, make merry through the darkness of winter, and we reminisce. You might find yourself pouring through old family photos, and if your friends are anything like mine, you will find yourself making new photo memories.

Photographs can be very bittersweet at this emotional time of the year. They tug at our heartstrings as we remember family and friends who are no longer with us. They track our growth, our aging, and our laughter lines. To a self-critic like me, they also serve as a captured reminder of my flaws and my insecurities. While I had always been told that my smile could light up a room, it was hard for me to see photos of myself when I wasn’t confident with the way my teeth looked. Don’t get me wrong, I am not camera-shy. After twenty-some years, I had developed camera angles you wouldn’t believe to minimize the contorted appearance of my crooked teeth. With the evolution of selfies, I became a pro at posing in ways that wouldn’t make you think twice that I didn’t have a normal smile. But around the holidays, when my friends and family were in charge of the camera, Facebook would always emerge with photos like these that left me feeling self conscious about my appearance.

If you’ve ever met me in the office or seen my previous blogs, you know how passionate I am about Invisalign. When I moved to the Midlothian/Chesterfield area, I had no idea how lucky I got in finding Dr. Gardner as my dental provider. Through his expertise, Invisalign has changed my confidence in my appearance and that has infiltrated every facet of my life.

In celebration of the holiday season, Bright Smiles is offering $500 off of Invisalign treatment, and for any new Invisalign patient that starts treatment, we will enter you into a raffle to WIN FREE INVISALIGN! This holiday special is good through December 15, 2017.

This December, remain steadfast in your New Year’s resolution for self-improvement in the coming year. If that resolution involves improving your oral hygiene health or improving your self-confidence in your appearance and you think Invisalign might be something that you are interested in learning more about, please reach out to us at Bright Smiles! We love to see the amazing transformations that our patients make and are honored to share that experience with you.

Adrienne is one of the friendliest people you’ll meet! She’s always happy and has a great talent of helping patients feel at home in our office. We love having Adrienne as part of our team.

Here is a little bit more about Adrienne in her own words…..

My name is Adrienne White and I am excited to welcome you to Bright Smiles Dental!  I love being a dental assistant because not only do I get to meet so many wonderful people, but I get to help Dr. Gardner make a positive difference in peoples lives as they feel better about their smile or find relief from pain or discomfort.

When I’m not assisting Dr. Gardner, my husband Chad and I keep busy running around our 3 kids.  When we get the chance we love to explore the Richmond area. Though originally from KY my family loved Richmond enough to move back a second time, hopefully to stay!  I also love travelling, running and hiking.  All of us look forward to meeting you and making you feel comfortable and happy at Bright Smiles!

What do a Storm Trooper, Darth Vader, and Teeth Whitening have in common? This picture of Dr. Davis Gardner, DDS in Chesterfield, VA and the awesome Bright Smiles Dental team member, Jessica!

Star Wars Dentist Joke || Hilarious! Can you see R2D2 in the back?



Star Wars Dentist Joke

Q: Why did the Storm Trooper Whiten his teeth?

A: To get rid of the Dark Side!

Even Storm Troopers know that a white smile can make all the difference. haha!

Can you spy R2D2 in the picture? He’s hiding in there!

Dr. Gardner and Jessica had a blast posing for this picture! We had the light saber going and they were both playing with the buttons on their masks. It was quite the sight!

We decided to have some fun and reenact this classic Star Wars Dentist joke and turn it into a funny dental meme for you! So instead of just envisioning the joke in your head, you can see what it would look like for a Storm Trooper to get their teeth done.

At Bright Smiles Dental, we like to have fun and enjoy a good joke as part of our work day!

We hope you enjoy this fun dentist meme and if you are looking for a Chesterfield Dentist, come see Dr. Davis Gardner! He’s a fantastic dentist and will take good care of you. If you are wondering where Bright Smiles is located, we are the new dental office right off Hull Street by the new Walmart and Hobby Lobby.

At Bright Smiles Dental in Chesterfield, VA, we like to have fun on Halloween! Its the only day of the year we get to wear something other than scrubs and white coats to work! So if you were lucky enough to get a Halloween day appointment {they went fast!}, instead of a dentist working on your mouth, you got a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle! Or if you were in getting your teeth cleaned, the lovely Minnie Mouse was scrubbing those teeth clean!

(above left to right) Julia and Jessica were Toothfairies, Dr. Gardner was Ninja Turtle Raphael, Adrienne was a Gypsy, and Stephanie was Minnie Mouse.

We have the best employees! They were such good sports about dressing up for our very first Halloween here at Bright Smiles dental! We hope to continue this tradition each year for Halloween. So if you want a fun day at the dentist, we highly recommend scheduling an appointment on Halloween next year! We only offer tricks on Halloween, no treats or sugar! haha!
