Office & Holiday Fun

Sometimes you just have to laugh a little

While the NeedDentist team takes their jobs and your healthy mouth seriously, sometimes you have to have a little fun around the office. Especially around Halloween, from dressing up like superheros to tooth like characters. Dr. Richards (left) surprised and left everyone in stitches when showing up to the office dressed like the Tooth Fairy.
