Holy Cow!! Rachel is so, so happy with the results and I’m blown away. Such a subtle change but such a huge difference. We’ve been standing in the mirror all weekend smiling, lol! Thanks bunches to Dr. Simmons and the entire team there for doing such a fantastic job. All of you are such a great group of people, it’s so great to have the level of professionalism you all have plus outstanding personalities on top of it! You have made me and my family patients for life!!
I want to thank you all for making me feel as though I was your only patient when I was there. Thank you for your patience and the compassion you give me to walk me through my fears! I felt today, I reached a milestone in getting my oral care off to a huge start. Thank you John for being so supportive, knowledgeable and great at what you do. I needed to put in writing how much your work and your selection of a great staff has done for me!
“I have to let you know my dental visit with you today was above and beyond my expectations. I find it hard to comprehend how technology can change so much. I always enjoy visiting your office and interfacing with your friendly staff, but as you know my favorite thing to do was NOT having crown work done. I knew we were going to use a different procedure today. There is so much less drilling, maybe half or less preparing the tooth for the new crown, no goopy impressions, no PAMPERING a temporary crown for a month. As you well know temporaries and I have a way of parting. The most fascinating part of the procedure for me was a permanent crown in about two hours. I AM AMAZED WITH THE PROCEDURE! I believe you called the procedure the Cerec system. Thanks Dr. Simmons for changing the procedure. I have scheduled an appointment for another crown this month that I had put off scheduling for approximately 7 months.”

“What a difference a smile makes! I am so pleased with the outcome of the dental work that Dr. Simmons completed. I have only one regret… that I did not do it sooner. I have had so many complements. Many thanks to Dr. Simmons and his wonderful staff, especially Kay, who were so patient, professional, and helpful throughout the entire process.”

“Thank you!! You guys have completely changed my views on going to the dentist! My entire life I have put off getting my teeth worked on (I even put off cleanings for years), because I was afraid the dentist. I realized this afternoon that with the right dentist and staff that there is nothing to be afraid of!! When I came in to have my crown done and my bite adjusted I was sooo nervous, because I’ve had one other crown done and I hurt for at least a week afterward. So needless to say, that as soon as the numbness started wearing off I was prepared to hurt. I didn’t. At all. I think if it weren’t for you and your staff that I would be sitting here now in a ton of pain! I was so comfortable throughout the whole process (even during the parts that i shouldn’t have been!) 🙂 Thank you for treating me and making my smile the way it should be. I’ve learned from you that it’s worth spending a little bit of time and money to make your teeth better from the start rather than waiting until there is a problem and it costing so much more of both!! Anyway, long story short-thank you for changing my views and for keeping me from hurting!!!! I’m honestly amazed! Thank you again!”
“I wanted to send a note of thanks to Dr. Simmons and the entire staff of Smiles by Simmons for several things:
First, Tracy, the individual who I first spoke to initially made a terrific first impression: she was polite and clearly concerned about helping me (I had a broken front lower crown and my dentist was out of town). I had spoken to five or six other dentist offices who seemed unconcerned and slightly rude regarding “working on another dentist’s crown.” Then, to my pleasant surprise, I received an appointment the very afternoon I called.
I was very warmly introduced to and welcomed by each person I met in the office, including the dentist. Dr. Simmons did a SUPERIOR job in painlessly repairing and reinserting the damaged (cosmetically designed) porcelain crown. I had only expected a quick fix until my own cosmetic doctor returned but I got MUCH, MUCH more!
The staff were professional, the offices warm and friendly, and the dentist a real pro! What more could one ask?! Dr. Simmons and the staff ofSmiles by Simmons are clearly genuine customer-centric people who pride themselves on a job well done and a pleased and happy patient.
I will happily endorse Smiles by Simmons at every opportunity. Thank you to all for throwing me a life saver!”
“My smile is more open and relaxed as a result of the changes that my cosmetic dentistry has made. I am no longer self conscious about letting my teeth be seen. Dr. Simmons did a great job of leading me through the process and explaining what he was doing when he was working in my mouth and why. I was impressed by his knowledge and ability to use this knowledge to create a work of art.”

“I am a businessman and spend most of my day interacting with people. My attitude and my appearance are an important aspect of how both my customers and employees respond to me. The cosmetic dentistry that Dr. Simmons performed for me corrected my bite problems and just as importantly gave me that attractive smile that I had not had my entire adult life. I smile easier these days and people respond to my smile with a smile of their own. I cannot thank Dr. Simmons and his staff of professionals enough for giving me the smile I have always wanted.”

“I am so excited about my smile now! Before I met Dr. Simmons, I didn’t smile much because I had such bad teeth – they were spotty and discolored. Dr. Simmons explained each step and was a wonderful ‘artist’. My teeth look natural and they are beautiful. I like to smile now – and I like Dr. Simmons so much that he is now my dentist!”

“I went to Panama City for Spring Break the year I was a junior in college. My friends and I had rented mopeds and were riding them when I hit a patch of sand and landed face first on the concrete. I brought my hand to my mouth and realized that I no longer had my front teeth!. To be honest I didn’t believe that I would ever have a beautiful smile again, which I was very upset about since I’d always been told my smile was one of my best attributes.
To my amazement, Dr. Simmons fixed my teeth. He made my smile look exactly like it had before the accident. I am an elementary school teacher and every year during dental health week, I tell my students this story and they never believe me until I show them the pictures as proof. And to top it all off, my husband, who I met years after the accident, says that the first thing he fell in love with about me was my smile.
Thank you so much for working so hard to make my smile something to be proud of again. I appreciate the time and effort that you put into working on my teeth. You are an artist!”

Dear Dr. Simmons,
“Thanks for giving me the bright smile I thought I would never have. I’ll try to use it as often as possible, and just maybe give someone else a brighter day!”
– H. Z.
Dear Dr. Simmons,
“I wanted to let you know how much I am enjoying my teeth. I have never had anything done that has made me feel so good about myself. I used to hide my smile, but now I try to smile more.”
“Before Dr. Simmons made my smile so beautiful, I used to hide my smile behind my hand. I always automatically covered my mouth with my hand if I laughed or smiled. Now I smile with confidence knowing my teeth are beautiful. I have never regretted having my teeth fixed. And now when people compliment me on my beautiful smile, I just smile bigger and say thank you.”

“I would like to express my appreciation for all the diligent work you did for me… I have to say that I was a bit apprehensive about having my bite altered (and having the onlays done as well). I’m glad that I did not let my fear get in the way because now I have a sound, proper fitting mouth. It feels so much better. Now that my bite is even, the urge to clench and grind is nearly gone. It is very evident at this point how much my uneven bit was affecting my sense of well-being. Thanks again for all of your hard work.”
– B. S.
“I wanted to drop you a not to again express my thanks for the recent treatment I received to correct my bite. As you know, I was originally skeptical that the treatment would be worth the time, effort, and expense involved. I must admit that my reservations were totally unwarranted, and I am really thrilled with the outcome. I no longer have any tension in my face, and all the stress I formerly experienced in my bite is gone. Undergoing the procedure was definitely the best decision I have made in a while.
Thank you again for your comprehensive approach. I have benefited greatly from your care and appreciate our relationship.”

“I just wanted to write you a little note to say ‘thank you’! The biteguard has made such a difference in my life. My teeth aren’t sensitive, I sleep better, I have less headaches. My jaw is lined up perfectly. After you leveled my teeth, I chew easier, nothing hits in the wrong place. I was very skeptical at first, but after the entire process, I’m a believer. So, hard as it is for me to admit it, ‘you were right’.”

“I never thought I would know what it felt like NOT to have a headache. After many years of headaches… I can finally say that I am, for the most part, headache-free.
I woke up with a severe headache.the pain was in my neck, traveling up to the back of my head. I had trouble focusing, turning my head a certain way, feelings of nausea and dizziness, in other words it was very debilitating. After many doctor’s appointments, diagnosing me with muscle spasms, medicating me with drugs that made me very sleepy and even sending me to the chiropractor, the headaches continued… The next Sunday during prayer request time in Sunday school, I mentioned the continuation of the pain I was experiencing and all of the tests that I was going through. I was feeling very frustrated. That evening my phone rang and it was Dr. John Simmons. He mentioned that My prayer request concerned him and he thought that he could help me. I had experienced, besides the headaches, ringing in my ears, clicking and popping sounds while yawning and just a lot of tension in the jaw area. He mentioned TMJ disorder. I was willing to try anything at this point. He asked me to come by his office the next morning and pick up a temporary appliance called an Aqualizer, just to see if TMJ was the problem. After wearing the appliance for ONLY 3 hours, my headaches were relieved. I continued to wear it mostly during the night, when the grinding of teeth was most prevalent… My jaw muscles are much more relaxed and the clicking and popping sounds when yawning have lessened. The headaches have diminished to about 1-2/month since the first of May.
Thanks to Dr. Simmons and his staff for all of their help and concern, I can live a much happier and for the most part headache-free life.”
“I just wanted to say thank you for the entire experience yesterday. I have never had a dentist visit half as good as my visit to your office. From beginning to end and with every person who interacted with me, I felt comfortable and informed. I truly look forward to a long relationship with your office!”
“This is a quick note to thank you for bringing back my beautiful smile. Many people had told me in my younger years, “what a beautiful smile” I had. I didn’t realize that I was hearing that less often. Now facing 60 and the mirror, it was time to do something about it. The Cerec one step dentistry was Perfect for my lousy schedule. Everything done in one visit. No impressions and NO TEMPORARY to swallow! Yesterday, I was back at work not even one hour when one of my patients commented, “What a lovely smile you have”! I do need to also say a word about your staff. Your customer service is outstanding. I would love for my staff at the hospital to rotate through your office practice to see it done right! I am looking forward to my next visit! ”
“Thank you for the time and effort you put into adjusting my bite. I had no idea how misaligned my bite was. In fact, I had no basis for comparison to know what proper alignment feels like. It is an amazing sensation to have all my molars touching at the same time when my mouth is closed. An even more amazing sensation is not to have constant tension in my jaw muscles. In addition to being unaware of my bite misalignment, I was completely unaware of the tension in my jaw. I attribute this tension reduction to the biteguard you made for me. It is an awesome sensation not to be tense!”
