“How do you like your new house?!” the TV host exclaims. You’ve seem this moment a hundred times before. This is when the family is supposed to jump for joy at their newly renovated house.

The American Dental Association recommends that everyone see the dentist twice a year for a dental checkup. And our dentists are always happy to see you!
