How it All Began

The story of our love for great smiles begins in an unlikely place: two brothers playing video games. 

One evening in 1993, an epic round of Street Fighter amidst sibling rivalry, ended in a surprising upset. A 7 year old had just soundly defeated his 12 year old brother at his own video game! A hurt teen ego led to a smack on the back of the little boy’s head, harder than anticipated, with the front of the head making a bee-line for the corner of the coffee table. Tooth met wood, then shattered, painfully exposing a nerve.

Shame and shock led to the older brother’s guilt, promising gifts for years to come if the little one could just never smile again, so their parents don’t find out.

As you can guess, the promise didn’t last.

This, perhaps, is a story more common than most siblings would admit.

The brothers didn’t come from a wealthy family, lacking access to a trained dentist, there was no quick tooth repair. The tooth remained broken, and the younger boy hid his fractured smile for years.

Little did these brothers know that this story would lead to the founding of this clinic.

The remorseful big brother wanted to see his brother smile with confidence again. From that moment in 1993 and through his years of schooling and training, he remained focused until his craft gave him the opportunity to not only bring back his brother’s smile, but to enhance it.

Why We Smile

In ancient days when caves were the primary homes of human, when creatures the size of tanks wandered the earth, there was a boy with eyes as curious as his soul.

Until one evening when he discovered a power hidden within his curved lips to the sky. A smile.

He had discovered a smile. A simple act – joy and confidence – that burned his soul with a sense of strength more powerful than fire.

Fear was no longer an obstacle and home no longer a prison as with his smile, he had the power to tame the wind and make even giants bow. So he left the cave, armed with courage, curiosity and his smile, determined to see the wonder of the world, full of dragons or not.

This boy, who lived in the times of dragons, smiles and other magic things, still lives on today.  He is within the boy who founded this Brush n Brace, and also the person you see in the mirror. Each of us ready to face today’s demons with that boy’s ancient secret:

“WE SMILE NOT SIMPLY BECAUSE WE ARE HAPPY.

WE ARE HAPPY BECAUSE WE SMILE.”
