This is Fred Ball for Zions Bank, speaking on business.
A smile costs nothing but creates much. It enriches those who receive without impoverishing those who give. It happens in a flash yet the memory of it can last forever.
That's what I thought when I walked into Lone Mountain Dental Studio in St. George. I saw a sign that read "creating beautiful smiles for St. George." I thought, "Now that would be a great way to make a living."
Dave Grin, owner of Lone Mountain Dental Studio agrees with me. His company not only provides beautiful smiles for St. George but for dentists and their patients across the country. As a dental studio, Dave and his staff work with dentists to create work resulting in the healthy, beautiful smile everyone desires. No more crooked teeth, dark fillings, dull, lifeless crowns or black metal shadows at the gum line.
Dentists and Dave, with his diagnostic lab support, evaluate patients to decide what corrective work is needed to provide that new smile. They then make an imprint of the patient's mouth and send it to Lone Mountain Dental. I watched as the well-trained and dedicated craftsmen at Lone Mountain created the lab work needed to restore broken or decayed teeth to their natural beauty and strength.
Dave is an authority on laboratory fabricated composite resin and dental restoration. His reputation results from his early training in the airforce as a medic and dental technician. Additionally, Dave has taught his art throughout the U.S., Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
Dave began his business in Las Vegas but relocated to St. George five years ago because he and his wife, Stephanie, wanted a more family-oriented lifestyle. Dave says it was a good decision — business is excellent and the Grins truly enjoy their new surroundings.
I'm sure Dave gets quite weary of people commenting on his name. But really, now, isn't "Grin" a great name for a guy who provides beautiful smiles?
