My name is Cheryl. I moved to Roanoke 6 years ago with my husband Kurt from California. When we needed to find a dentist I looked locally and was lucky to find Dr. Word at Summit Dental. Dr. Word and her staff are very competent and enjoyable to deal with. They are genuinely concerned about our dental needs without any high pressure sales. I refer Summit Dental to anyone asking for a dentist. Remember to SMILE.
I have been a patient of Dr. Word’s at Summit Dental for several years. The office staff and atmosphere are warm and inviting. I’ve never had to wait and I am in and out in a short time. Dr. Word makes the experience so pleasant. She is always gentle, but thorough, and I look forward to my semi-annual visits. I have recommended Dr. Word to all my friends and family. Thank you, Dr. Word!
You can tell how much pride Dr. Crawford takes in his work. Truly incredible workmanship. I really like his conservative approach toward my dental care. He is a very caring and genuine person and really puts you at ease in the dental chair. I have referred many of my friends and coworkers to him and they all think he is an exceptional dentist. -Debbie L., patient since 1999
I found Dr. Word in 2002 when I moved to Texas and what a blessing she has been for me and my family thru the years! I have had very limited dental issues other than the routine cleaning twice a year until last year after an unfortunate restaurant experience. The care and comfort that she provides is top notch, with the personal touch that I haven’t seen from a dentist before. Dr. Word has always had the best attitude and willing to go the extra mile for your comfort and to make sure that you leave an anxiety at the door. I would refer anyone looking for an awesome dentist to Dr. Word!
I started seeing Dr. Crawford several years ago and am so glad I did. He is very thorough and always informs me of everything that needs attention. I have also seen some of his cosmetic dentistry and his is top notch.-Dan L., patient since 2009
I have been going to Dr. Word for dental care for over 10 years. She is hands-down one of the best dentists I have ever seen. Her demeanor is very calming, which makes the experience of going to the dentist much easier. She thoroughly listens to my issues and never makes me feel rushed. Her staff is extremely professional and they take good care of me each time I have an office visit. It’s nice to have a dentist that I look forward to going to instead of dreading the experience. I have recommended her to several friends, and they love her as well. My husband really likes her, too! She and her staff are the best!!
After retiring, I relocated from Colorado. I wanted to bring my family dentist with me. Dr. Word was recommended. My friend said she would be a great choice. Best decision I’ve made. She and her entire staff treat you with respect and acknowledge the value of your time. In addition, she listens and gets to know you and your needs.
I moved to the area 10 years ago. When in need of professional services, I inquired of neighbors and friends the most reliable and recommended. Dr. Dan Crawford with Summit Dental in Trophy Club was highly recommended for dental services. I’ve been Dr. Crawford’s patient these past years and am very pleased and satisfied with his services and the staff. Not only is his work outstanding, he has the latest dental equipment. I highly recommend Dr. Crawford for your dental needs.
Our family would recommend Summit Dental to anyone looking for a dentist that they can trust. Dr. Word and her staff are wonderful. She explains treatment in terms that everyone can understand and her commitment to patient care and education is completely evident. I moved my young children form a Pediatric dentist to Dr. Word and I am so glad I did. She truly cares for her job and her patients. The office staff is very helpful and organized, and they are always willing to get any of us in if we need some immediate attention. I absolutely recommend Summit Dental Care for kids and adults. Once you experience Dr. Word and her staff, I am confident that you will too.
From the moment you enter the office, the remarkably friendly staff and the tranquil décor, put you at ease for what many is a stressful necessity in life. Dr. Crawford proves dedicated to getting to the root of any dental issues and using his state-of-the-art equipment and procedures sets in motion a plan tailored to you. I never feel unnecessary work is being done. The goal is to insuring a healthy mouth and a happy smile.
My family and I have been going to Dr. Kris Word for dental needs since she was located in Grand Prairie, Texas back in the early 1990’s. My children were just 3 and 5 when they started to see her for dental checkups. They have always felt comfortable with her. Luckily when we moved to Southlake, Texas back in 1999, Kris Word had also relocated to Summit Dental in Trophy Club, Texas. My husband, Bruce, has stated that the Summit Dental staff is always so friendly and professional. Our insurance claims are handled quickly. We highly recommend Summit Dental for your dental needs.
When I moved to Trophy Club three years ago, I needed to find a new dentist. I was so fortunate to find Dr. Kris Word! She is compassionate, gentle, and does excellent work. I was so lucky to have her when my bridge needed to be replaced. She not only whitened my teeth prior to doing the bridge, she went the extra mile in making the bridge and matching it to my beautiful white teeth. I use to dread going to the dentist. Now I look forward to going. I know that Dr. Word will always do what is BEST for my dental health!
Dr. Crawford has been my dentist of choice for over twelve years. The staff at Summit Dental is always friendly and helpful and the level of care is always exceptional. I’d recommend Dr. Crawford to anyone looking for painless, caring dental care.- John M., patient since 2000
Great experience. Worry and concern was easily put to rest with Dr. Word’s ease and expertise followed by a prompt and excellent surgery to resolve my cavity. Trust her and her staff. They are the best.
We have been patients at Summit Dental for nearly 6 years, and our experiences have been very good. Friendly and professional staff. Great location. Very accommodating to our needs. Dr. Word and staff genuinely care about the patients’ dental health and well-being. It is always an enjoyable visit. We recommend that anyone in the area consider Dr. Word for their dental needs.
I was referred to Summit Dental by a coworker and I absolutely love them! The entire staff is so welcoming and they make me feel like family every time I walk in the door. My experience with Dr. Crawford is always great! I wouldn’t go anywhere else for my dental needs and will continue to recommend them to everyone.
Who knew going to the dentist would be so much fun?! The staff at Summit Dental is courteous and kind and always there to assist anyway we need. Dr. Crawford has entertained our family for over four years. With his witty personality and contagious laugh, it has made a comfortable environment for our kids whatever the age!
Dr. Word and the staff at Summit Dental have treated my whole family for many years. They are the most friendly and caring dental office we have come across. They go above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and never rush us out the door to make room for the next patient. I highly recommend them for patients of any age.
Our visits at the office with Dr. Crawford have been awesome. They help keep you occupied with a movie during your cleanings which is very helpful with the children. Dr. Crawford walks you through every step of the way so you know what is going on. I have and will recommend his office for the whole family to all.
When I moved back to this area after living in Virginia for ten years, one of the first things I needed to do was select a dentist. In doing so, I had three major criterion; clinical expertise, proven reputation and reasonable costs. Dr. Word had been my wife’s family dentist for years so Summit Dental came highly recommended. Dr. Word has surpassed all of my expectations and positively aligned Summit Dental with my three decision making factors. I have been a patient of Dr. Word’s for almost ten years now and I have highly recommended her to my family and friends. She is exceptional from a clinical standpoint, extremely competitive relative to her fee structures and most importantly-GENTLE!
Prior to moving to Trophy Club over three years ago, I dreaded going to the dentist. It had been well over 5 years before my last dentist visit. Then I was introduced to Summit Dental. Everyone from Marsha in the reception area to the back office staff make me feel so comfortable each time I visit. I go every 6 months and the experiences have always been fantastic! Dr. Word is just amazing! Thanks!
Due to bad experiences with previous dentists, my husband and I didn’t see a dentist for many years. We were introduced to Dr. Crawford via a good friend and have been going to see him religiously ever since. He is a jovial, gentle dentist who explains everything so that we can understand what is happening. In addition, Dr. Crawford’s wonderful staff are always very warm and accommodating. I highly recommend him to everyone and anyone.
Dr. Word and Staff, I just wanted to take a minute to let you know how much my family has enjoyed being patients! I don’t think we’ve ever had such kind, gentle attention and genuine caring from a dentist or their staff. It’s actually nice to visit your great facility, with parking just feet from the door, the wonderful reception and check, the stacks of up-to-date magazines waiting to be read in the reception room (which I barely get to open because I have never had to wait long enough), kind assistants and expert dental care – and – everyone seems to remember who we are! My husband and kids all feel the same way. Our youngest son left there saying ‘What’s not to like about going to the dentist when they treat you like that?’ Keep up the great work and see you soon!
Dr. Dan Crawford and his staff are caring professionals who have provided me with excellent dental care for many years. Dr. Crawford definitely had an impact on me and my smile. A year ago, I broke a temporary crown over a weekend while out of state. After I contacted Dr. Crawford’s after-hours number, he returned my call and was willing to meet me up at his office upon my return Sunday afternoon – now that is what I call customer service!
Going to the dentist was never any fun. Dr. Kris Word makes it as easy as it can be, pain-free and in a relaxed environment. Dr. Kris Word and her staff do excellent work. Summit Dental has the latest technology coupled with the highest skill and professionalism. Dr. Kris Word makes difficult dental issues routine and the impossible ones a positive experience. Dr. Kris Word and staff are the only dentist for our family and we recommended her to all of our friends.
Summit Dental Care has a level of customer service that is unmatched. As one of their first patients, I can attest that they care about their patients on a personal level and this has not wavered over the years. Dr. Crawford and his entire staff are courteous, competent and consistent. I look forward to our visits and plan to be a patient there for many years to come. –Rebecca M., patient since 1999
Dr. Kris Word has been my dentist for 11 years. Her techniques reflect the most current methods in dentistry. She is thorough, but gentle; honest, but not ‘high-pressured’. The entire staff at Summit Dental is warm and friendly as well. I appreciate the care I receive from Dr. Word and each member of the staff at Summit!
We moved to Trophy Club a year ago and were looking for a local dentist. A friend highly recommended Dr. Word. I made an appointment for myself and was so impressed with her personality, style and dental care, that I decided to make appointments for my 3 children. They actually love going to the dentist! My whole family now sees Dr. Word regularly, and when we need emergency appointments, they are very accommodating. I highly recommend Dr. Word and her office staff!
My family has gone to Summit Dental Care for several years now and I’m very pleased with the level of professionalism from Dr. Crawford and his entire staff. Dr. Crawford and his staff make you feel comfortable in whatever procedure that is being done. They are very thorough and friendly which you don’t experience much of these days. My daughter is 8 years old and had to have teeth pulled and they made the whole experience as pleasant as possible for her. I especially love the fact that they have TVs in the ceiling that help to distract from procedures that aren’t always so pleasant. His office is always clean and welcoming and they seem to have the latest and greatest technology there is to offer. I would definitely recommend Dr. Crawford to friends and family. I drive almost 45 minutes to his office simply for the fact that I know my family and I are receiving the best treatment possible.
Dr. Word has been my dentist for the past 18 years, and I could not imagine going anywhere else. The staff at Summit Dental make you feel comfortable and relaxed from the moment you walk in the door. The experience I have every time is priceless. Dr. Word puts your concerns at ease and cares about your desires. I feel blessed to have found such a wonderful and caring dentist.
My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Dan Crawford for almost 12 years. During that time, we have received nothing less than excellent dental work. He and his staff have always been more than accommodating with all of our dental needs. We would recommend Dr. Crawford for any dental work a person may require.
My wife and I have been patient of Dr. Kris Word for seventeen years. During this time, she has treated us for routine dental hygiene, as well as a myriad of dental issues including fillings, crowns, root canals and dental implants. We have been very pleased with her dental care and her professionalism. We drive from Midlothian, so her scheduling and promptness has always been appreciated. We wish her continued success.
I’ve been a patient of Summit Dental in the care of Dr. Crawford for several years. I have always found the staff to be extremely caring and helpful. Every step of every process has always been explained to the fullest and all my questions answered in detail. Dr. Crawford is very gentle, so gentle that my 5 year old and 9 year old love going to see him and have for years. I would never consider seeing anybody else for my family’s dental care.
I was always one of those people who disliked the dentist and the constant lectures about poor dental hygiene, so much so that I refused to see a dentist unless something was really wrong. This was true until I met Dr. Crawford. Now, I actually look forward to my appointments. Under the care of Dr. Crawford, my teeth and gums are healthier than they have been in years. He informs me of the progress and options that I have, but he does not lecture repeatedly. He and his staff are very professional and friendly, and appointments are on time. In my opinion, Dr. Crawford is the number one dentist in the Metroplex and I would strongly recommend him to anyone needing dental services.
My family and I have been patients of Dr. Word for the past 14 years. We continue to use Dr. Word, even though we have moved 65 miles away, because she and her staff have always provided excellent dental services for routine and urgent dental work. I would recommend Dr. Word to anyone looking for a personal or family dentist.
We were originally referred to Summit Dental by our orthodontist, who had seen a pattern of thorough cleaning with several of his best patients. When he asked about their dental care, they consistently said they went to Dr. Crawford at Summit Dental. Since becoming patients ourselves, we have not only had preventative care but also had several corrective and cosmetic procedures done and we have been extremely satisfied with the level of care we have received. We drive almost an hour to our appointments, passing many dental offices along the way, but we believe it is worth it. It would be difficult to find a practice that displays the level of professionalism, courtesy and efficiency we have found at summit Dental.
Dr. Word and the staff at Summit Dental Care are the best! At every stage of a visit, you are made to feel welcome and comfortable. Any procedure, from a routine cleaning on up, is explained at the level of detail you request, and time is always taken to make sure that everyone involved is ready to move forward with a procedure before doing so. Couple this unparalleled level of care from a personal perspective with the wealth of knowledge and experience, and you have a combination that cannot be beaten. My family and I have visited Dr. Word at Summit Dental Care for years, and we will continue to do so for years to come! I highly recommend Summit Dental Care. Thank you, Dr. Word and team!
My husband and I are so very thankful to have Dr. Crawford for our dentist. He has gone beyond our expectations in his care for us both. Dr. Crawford is always professional and friendly, and he is very good at what he does. He is a perfectionist who takes his time to do his job right and he stands by his work with honesty and integrity. He is conscientious about the comfort of the person he is attending to, his staff is friendly, and the atmosphere is very clean. My husband and I fully trust Dr. Crawford to do a good job, and to do only what is truly needed. When I first came to him, I had a problematic crown that was horribly uncomfortable. Dr. Crawford asked about the crown without my mentioning it, was able to identify the problem, and replaced it. In the process, Dr. Crawford himself was not satisfied with one fitting of the crown and even went so far as to redo it without any extra charges to me. He diligently worked until a difficult fit was perfect. He did what my previous dentist wasn’t able, or willing to do – and I am so grateful! I don’t think there is a better dentist out there!
I have the privilege to say a few words about Summit Dental Care. I was one to NOT be comfortable in the dentist chair. Dr. Crawford has made me feel at ease and relaxed in the chair, no matter what the reason for being there. I would recommend Summit Dental because of the entire staff, they know you when you call and make you feel right at home. I have seen several dentists before, and Dr. Crawford is right at the top of the list of best dentists. Going to the dentist is a nice experience again.
Dr. Word and her office staff are AMAZING!! The service received from the time you walk into the office to having Dr. Word clean your teeth, and the flexibility of payments when large charges are incurred are something that I’ve never had before. I don’t remember when I could actually say that visiting a dentist was a memorable experience, but Dr. Word has the ability to do just that! Thank you, Dr. Word, and your entire staff.
Dr. Crawford is the best dentist we have ever gone to. His bedside manner is unlike that of anyone we have seen. Most other dentist offices have the hygienists do their cleanings, but Dr. Crawford is always the one to do it with a gentle hand, likable personality and genuine concern for dental health. The office staff is very friendly and we would recommend Summit Dental Care to anyone!
My wife and I are in our seventies and both needed major dental work. We were referred to Dr. Kris Word several years ago and immediately felt comfortable in her office. She explained all our options and answered any questions we had. We never felt rushed and were always treated with courtesy and respect. You can tell right away that she cares deeply about her patients and her responsibility to them. We have since moved to Lubbock, but still make the drive twice a year to see her. We couldn’t be happier with the work, the service and the overall feel of her office. She is fantastic!
Dr. Dan Crawford has been our family dentist since Summit Dental Care opened their doors. He truly cares about each patient by afterhours phone calls, referrals to specialists, and his involvement with your care. His office staff is friendly and works with you to ensure your needs are met. I have dental anxiety…Dr. Crawford and his staff understand this and work hard to alleviate my fears. I appreciate his genuine, down-to-earth style. I highly recommend Dr. Crawford and Summit Dental.
We are long-term patients of Dr. Kris Word, and I can’t say enough good things about her and her staff. She really has a way of putting my kids at ease and making the visits fun. From video games in the reception area, movies in the treatment rooms and picking prizes from the ‘treasure box’, my kids actually look forward to their checkups. Thanks, Dr. Word, for the great care you provide.
Finding Dr. Word and Summit Dental has been a blessing for my entire family. Before we found her, we were all going to separate dentists and none of us was happy. Now we all go to our appointments together in our local neighborhood (although I would drive any distance to see Dr. Word). In my mind, there is no better gift than being able to bring your young children to a dentist and know that they are safe, happy and beyond well-taken care of. My husband and I love that when we walk into the office we are greeted with a smile in an office that is warm and inviting. My boys love that they can watch movies if they choose, but they actually just enjoy visiting with Dr. Word. She has been seeing both of them since they were toddlers and to us, she is family. She remembers everything we have ever told her and she asks us each visit how we are, and not just about our dental health. I think the best think I can say about Dr. Word and Summit Dental is that I don’t feel like I am just seeing a dentist; I am spending time with people who care about my family and look out for our best interests. I have recommended this office to everyone I know and will continue to do so.
We love the office because everyone is so personable! When you call to make an appointment, they always call you right back and do everything they can to get you the appointment you want. When you come in the office everyone is so friendly and smiling that it makes you feel like they all know who you are and you aren’t just a patient number. I would recommend Dr. Crawford to all my friends and family or anyone looking for a new dentist.
We have been patients of Dr. Word for many years, and she has cared for us, our children and our elderly parents during that time. She has handled everything from the routine to the most urgent dental matters, and she has accommodated our needs on many occasions in really amazing ways. Beyond all the professional stuff, which is in itself truly excellent, she is an absolutely lovely person. She is without doubt the kindest, most gentle and compassionate dentist we have ever had, and we cannot imagine having any other person provide our dental care. No one really wants to go to the dentist, but everyone needs to on occasion. Her skills and her gentle manner really minimize the anxiety of a dental visit. Dr. Word is one fantastic person, and her team is great! We cannot endorse her and the Summit Dental folks enough, and we absolutely recommend her (and them!) to anyone needing outstanding dental services.
Dr. Crawford and his entire staff are great. My whole family goes to Summit Dental Care and they have always been professional, honest, friendly and on time. They really listen to the patient and work with their preferences. This past summer, I chipped a tooth late at night before leaving town the next morning. Dr. Crawford answered my call that night and fixed it first thing the next morning. And with no evidence of any chip, I was on my way. I highly recommend this practice.
I have been a patient of Dr. Word’s for over 15 years. I used my childhood dentist for years, but needed a new dentist after moving. I did my research and was very impressed with Dr. Word’s education, experience and the fact that she also taught at Baylor after graduating. One of the nicest surprises, after meeting Dr. Word for my first appointment, was how kind and personable she was and her extraordinarily calming manner. Even my friends and family that intensely disliked going to the dentist in the past, no longer felt any anxiety or stress when visiting Dr. Word for their appointments. The entire staff at Summit Dental is extremely knowledgeable and professional and they have worked as a team for many years. The environment is relaxing and you can watch movies during procedures too. The general dentistry services Dr. Word has performed on me include annual x-rays, teeth cleaning, fillings and wisdom tooth removal. The cosmetic dentistry services I have had are a dental bonding and the teeth whitening process, ZOOM! I could not have been more pleased and satisfied with the quality of work for all these services. Prior to coming to Dr. Word, the bond on two of my teeth was constantly breaking, causing me a lot of embarrassment and awkward moments as it is in the front of my mouth. After seeing Dr. Word, she figured out a way to create the bond that has made it last years, and I no longer worry about it breaking anymore. I had also purchased a teeth whitening service from another dental clinic that left me with teeth that were two-toned where it did not whiten the tooth near my gum line. So, I decided to try ZOOM! at Summit Dental. The ZOOM! process was painless and easy and it left me with beautifully whitened teeth all the way to my gum lines. The maintenance system is simple and my trays perfectly fit my teeth so are very comfortable to use. I have referred, co-workers, family and friends to Dr. Word who have all experienced the same excellent service that I have received. I will continue to refer people to Dr. Word as a very pleased patient who wishes everyone could have the same wonderful experience I have when going to the dentist.
Dr. Crawford and his team are amazing. Friendly, caring and always willing to go the extra mile to help you achieve your smile goals. Marsha in the front office always has a smile in her voice and on her face. It makes going to the dentist a pleasure. My kids enjoy watching a movie during their cleanings. I especially like the lip balm that Dr. Crawford puts on my lips to prevent them from chapping during my cleanings. It’s the little extras at Summit Dental Care that keeps us coming back.
Someone told me years ago that when you find a good dentist-you stay with them no matter how far away they move. Dr. Word is that dentist. My family and I have been going to Dr. Word for close to 20 years and we don’t even think twice about the 80 miles round trip for our visits. Even though my sons have left home and have families of their own, they still go to Dr. Word and take my grandson. One of the things I really value about Dr. Word is that she takes her time with us and guarantees all her work and materials. While working on our teeth, Dr. Word always asks if I am doing okay or does she need to stop for a while to give me a break. If you can say that a dentist visit is ever painless-that is what I would say about my visits with Dr. Word. Dr. Word and the staff at Summit Dental have always treated us as welcomed guests. They remember to ask about other family members, ask about what is going on in our family and supporting us in more ways than I can name.
Dr. Crawford has been my dentist ever since he began his practice in Trophy Club. When I began seeing him, I was in need of a new dental bridge on my upper front teeth. Before he started my new bridge, he listened to me say that my bite never felt quite right ever since I had the original bridge done by my previous dentist. He recommended that I consider getting braces before we made my new bridge in order to correct my bite and to get the best result possible. He referred me to the orthodontist and I wore braces for about 2 years before he made my new bridge. I am so pleased with the result! My bite feels perfect now and my new bridge looks beautiful and very natural. He definitely had my best interest in mind. He has honesty and integrity and he always puts his patients’ needs first. He has a very gentle touch. I have had a lot of dental work done and he has never hurt me. I have complete trust in him. On one occasion, I actually fell asleep in the chair while he did a root canal. If that’s not trust, then I don’t know what is. I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Crawford. Needless to say, I highly recommend him!
I had a crown emergency on Dec 31, 2008 of all days! I was new to this area and did not have a dentist yet. I found Dr. Kris Word at Summit Dental Care open, although for just a short time due to the fact that it was New Year’s Eve day. She worked me in and took care of my emergency right then and there. If she was hurried to leave that day, I never knew it! She could have turned me, a new patient away that day, but she didn’t. My family’s and my loyalties lie with Dr. Word to this day. We are blessed to have found such a wonderful, caring dentist to take care of our dental needs
I have been a patient of Dr. Crawford’s for about 6 years. What I really appreciate about him is the personal interest he takes in his patient’s dental health. Needless to say, the routine dental care is outstanding, but the extra time and care he takes with his patients goes far beyond any dentist I’ve ever used. When I was interested in some cosmetic work, his guidance and advice was helpful and honest. The results of the work was truly amazing and honestly makes me feel better about myself and restored some much needed self-confidence. I have recommended Dr. Crawford to many friends and colleagues, and will continue to do so without hesitation.
I have been a patient of Dr. Crawford’s for the better part of the last 10 years. I have always been impressed with the quality of care, professionalism and friendliness of Dr. Crawford and his staff. They go out of their way to make a dental visit as pleasant and comfortable as possible. Administratively, they do a great job of dealing with the different insurance companies. I just can’t imagine using a different dentist, and I feel fortunate to have become one of their patients.
Dr. Crawford is fun to be around and such a great guy, I actually look forward to going to the dentist. His staff is fantastic as well and cares about the patients. You just know that these guys care about you and your health. I drive a distance just to keep seeing Dr. Crawford and will never see anyone else as long as I am in the DFW area.
When I first saw Dr. Kris Word over 20 years ago, she was still a student at Baylor College of Dentistry. I grew up in a small town and throughout my life had never seen a regular dentist. By the time I was in my late 40’s, I had several serious dental issues that needed to be addressed. I went to the dental school, in the beginning, to save on expense since I needed a great deal of treatment. That was the best decision I ever made, and it had nothing to do with the cost factor, but with the fact that Dr. Word came into mine and my family’s life. After over 20 years, my entire family still sees Dr. Word. She is not only a wonderful person, but the most honest, caring and technically proficient dentist we could have ever hoped for. We have referred many of our family and friends to Dr. Word, and they all love her as well. You couldn’t ask for a better dentist. She is wonderful!
Our family has been going to Dr. Crawford for over 8 years and we would never consider another dentist. He is personable, attentive to detail and has given us extremely good dental care. One never gets the feeling he is trying to hurry or run you through the procedures but rather he takes his time and gets it right! It is like going to your friend to have your teeth worked on.
