THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - His smiles sure can fill a room. But it was the smiles of one mother/daughter duo that had everyone talking.
"It's really exciting," said Tine Arrington and Janette Pierson.
And who wouldn't be excited knowing their face and pearly whites are on the cover of a journal that circulates across 70 countries? Dr. Thomas Oppenheim put them there.
"It's real rewarding, it's hard to put into words," said Dr. Oppenheim.
But Thursday night he had plenty of words as he gathered with family, friends, and patients, to celebrate his achievements in the world of cosmetic dentistry and unveil his 7th cover on the Journal of Cosmetic Dentistry, something he calls the "Rolling Stone" of his industry.
"I believe each and every patient deserves the absolute best," he said.
And it's that attitude that also helped him achieve Accredited Fellow status in the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, joining an elite group of only 51 dentists in the world.
"When we restore those smiles you can see almost an instant effect," he said.
Something many people in the room Thursday night, could attest to.
"It was the only thing in my life I wanted to change and it has made such a difference. When you smile it's the first thing people see," said Tina Arrington, one of the faces on the new cover of the Journal of Cosmetic Dentistry.
"We're big talkers. We like to laugh and we love everyone and when you've got pretty teeth that helps!" said Tina's mother, Janette Pierson, both patients of Dr. Oppenheim.
And it's that satisfaction, that Dr. Oppenheim says is the best award he could receive.
"Gosh, when you're in a business where you can impact people's lives like this, it's just incredible, just a great profession to be in," he said.
A profession he'll continue. Changing lives, one smile at a time. Feedback
