"Honestly, it’s been really life-changing for me. Before to Dr. Spaulding I had never used dental floss my entire life, I really dreaded coming to the dentist and tried not to think about dental hygiene or preventive dentistry at all. Dr. Spaulding taught me preventive dentistry, that I can take of my own teeth though flossing and good dental hygiene at home. She gave the basic tools that allowed me to come to the dentist less and save a lot of money on dental care. It’s allowed my teeth and gums to become very healthy, something I know I’ll be able to maintain."
