Dr. Jason Hecht: What's important is how someone feels about their own smile because how someone feels about their own smile will project into how they interact with other people. Dr. Alex Hecht: When implants came about, it's just an incredible experience. These patients that were here today, that's the regular stuff. Those people are just so happy and you're, of course, so happy for them because you know you can deliver. Joe: I don't think anybody else could have done the job as good as they did. If I had to do it all over again, I would come back here. We recommended a couple of our friends to come down here. They were more than satisfied with the work. Carmela: But they gave him a new smile and a new reason to live. He had false teeth on his bottoms. They did his implants. They gave him a new step in his walk, and they made him a younger man. Dr. Jason Hecht: So whether it's with implants, whether it's with fillings, whether it's with veneers, it's all about creating that smile for them. Dr. Alex Hecht: And the patients are told right off the bat that this is going to be a two-doctor team that's going be to be working on you. We don't tell them that he's going to do the implants, and I'm going to do the prosthetics or vice versa. Whoever's available at whatever time and that's what makes things work out so well. Dr. Jason Hecht 1: It's like I got a fast forward in the world of dentistry compared to any other dentist graduating around my age where they would just be thrust into the field without any real world experience. I have behind me someone with 30-35 years of experience in the dental field. And in addition to all the technical knowledge and technical know-how that I learned from him, what I additionally learned from that is customer care that he has such a strong natural understanding for. He will basically promise the impossible. He will promise that they will have beautiful teeth by the time their daughter's getting married. Dr. Alex Hecht: And that happens on a regular basis, actually. Dr. Jason Hecht: Almost every few weeks. Oh, my son's getting married. My daughter's getting married. I need new beautiful teeth by then. And somehow we figure out a way together and we deliver that. And they might get it the morning of the wedding. They might get it the day before the wedding, just on time. We'll even come in on the weekends to get to them on time and pull up that miracle for these people. So it's that old world customer care that he's brought with him to the practice that I've learned from that has really been an amazing thing. Dr. Alex Hecht: The reason we can deliver cases so quickly is because he does part of the lab work in-house here. Dr. Jason Hecht: Being on the cusp of that new technology interested me. In being able to use and learn and work with all these new technologies on a daily basis was something that really interested me. So it's something that both of us have a passion with and that we try to bring into the practice on a regular basis. Dr. Alex Hecht: Patients that come to us and get this specialized type treatment have family, and they see what our abilities are with real difficult cases. So obviously, that translates into superb ability in doing regular stuff. Joe: I can't say enough about these guys. They did a wonderful, wonderful job. And the staff, of course. Their support staff is unbelievable. Dr. Jason Hecht: They tell us, like, you changed my life. They tell us that everything is different for me. Dr. Alex Hecht: And it's, like, all the time. It's not like a unique thing, like once in a while. This is an art. Doing dentistry is an art. It's not a mechanical something. Part of it, yes, it's mechanical, but the final outcome has to look good. The patient has to smile, and they have to be happy with the way they look.
