Congratulations! By opening this book, you have taken the first step in an incredible, life-changing journey. My name is Dr. Mark McMahon, a second-generation dentist from Tucson, Arizona and I am thrilled to be your guide.
Now, you may be wondering, “life-changing journey,” isn’t this a book about dentistry? Has someone turned on the nitrous a bit too high? Nope, you’ve read correctly. By the end of this book, you’ll have gained the knowledge to set forth on an adventure that will give you a healthy, beautiful smile. You will find your self-esteem, relationships, and even professional aspirations improving. You will vacation in an exotic locale and immerse yourself in culture, cuisine, and art. You will accomplish all of this while saving thousands and perhaps tens of thousands of dollars.
Before we begin this journey, I would like you to think about your smile. Such a simple word with such a profound impact on our lives. We smile when we are happy. We smile when we make others happy. We smile when we catch the eye of an admirer or when we’re interviewing for that exciting new job. Smiling is the doorway to our inner happiness. Radiating positive energy outward and taking it back into ourselves. Now, take a moment to look at yourself in the mirror. Smile your biggest and brightest smile. I’ll wait… Welcome back! Are you happy with your smile? Does it reflect those moments of happiness and tranquility inside of you? Or, instead, does your smile make you feel less happy? Less like the person you want to be. If you do not truly love your smile, then it is time for a change. I can almost hear your thoughts. But Dr. Mark, change is scary. Change is expensive. Change is thrusting myself into an abyss without knowing what lay before me. Change is bad, Bad, BAAAAADDDD!
Relax my friend. Right now, I have a huge smile on my face. Why? Because I know a secret. Change can be all of those things, but change can also be amazing. All you need is a little knowledge, a little preparation, and if you are fortunate, a guide. That is what I am here for. To guide you through that abyss with money in your pocket and a smile bursting off your amazing face. This is your first step. You have already succeeded in taking the jump. It is time to smile brighter, dream bigger, and live your best life. YOU ARE WORTH IT! Sound appealing? Then read on, because we are only just getting started.
