Gloria’s Transformation: A Grand Dental Success Story

Transcript of the video: Gloria’s Smile Story

Gloria's Smile Story

Gloria’s story is quite funny because her husband initially came to us determined to get straighter and nicer teeth. He was preparing for a high school reunion and wanted his teeth fixed beforehand. Gloria sat in the background, observing the entire process. By the end, both she and her husband loved the results. Seeing her husband’s successful transformation, Gloria decided to trust us with her own dental issues.

Over the years, Gloria had numerous dental problems, but her teeth were fundamentally strong and solid. She was committed to doing whatever it took to fix them. Fortunately, her teeth were in a condition where they could be repaired rather than replaced. We always prefer to preserve natural teeth instead of replacing them with artificial ones.

For Gloria, we were able to place crowns on all of her teeth, restoring them to a healthy state. The amusing part of her story is how she watched her husband go through the process, making him the “guinea pig.” Once she saw his successful results, she felt confident to proceed herself. She wisely waited to see if we could deliver on our promises before committing.

Like Gloria, you might want to see someone else go through the process before deciding. We hope these videos, testimonials, and pictures help you realize what we do best: full-mouth dentistry. After seeing these smile stories, we hope you, like Gloria, will trust us to give you the smile you desire. Give us a call when you’re ready!

Dr. Eric on the life-changing impact of this Smile Story.

At Grand Dental in Grand Junction, CO, we have the pleasure of transforming many smiles and boosting our patients’ confidence. Gloria’s story is a wonderful example of how seeing is believing when it comes to dental care!

Gloria’s journey to a new smile started with her husband. He was determined to have straighter and nicer teeth before his high school reunion. Throughout his process, Gloria observed from the background, curious but cautious. She watched as we worked on his teeth, fixing issues and transforming his smile. When he saw the results, he was thrilled, and his newfound confidence convinced Gloria to take her turn in the dental chair.

Gloria had struggled with dental issues for years, but her teeth were still fundamentally strong. This meant we could focus on fixing her natural teeth rather than replacing them. At Grand Dental, our goal is always to preserve natural teeth whenever possible. For Gloria, this meant getting crowns on all her teeth to restore their function and appearance.

One thing that stands out about Gloria’s story is the humor and caution with which she approached her transformation. She let her husband be the “guinea pig” and only decided to proceed after seeing his successful results. This careful approach paid off, as she was confident in our ability to deliver the smile she wanted.

Featured Testimonials


“I chose Dr. Benefield after researching dentists in Grand Junction following a move from Arizona. I needed extensive work, including implants and a bridge. We discussed the cost and the time frame (about a year). After an exam, he quoted me a price for the total package. I could not have made a better choice. The whole staff are super careful about the pandemic, as well as very caring and professional. Dr. Benefield, (known in the office as ‘Dr Eric’), has worked diligently with me for the past 8 months and I couldn’t be happier with the results. He obviously enjoys what he does and makes every effort to make it as painless as possible.” ~ Jean
