    They speak the truth. The way your teeth are shaped, spaced, and whether or not you lose them early is all encoded into your DNA. It's genetics. It's all passed down generation to generation.

    Apple Tree Dental does not accept new clients. Called to make appointment and was told to contact Community Dental. Apple Tree dental is not a good choice if you need help.

    Sorry for the delayed response (must have missed your earlier post). Consider deleting your first post (from Aug 7) so that it doesn't show up in search results.

    I would also like to remove the "painkillers and..." reference on the Hennepin County Urgent Care listing -- but no one seems to be updating this blog page. - HCMC

    I wish I could change this website so people don't come into the union gospel mission as a walk in due to the bad information just to find out that they can't be seen. If the people who posted this site could change the information that would be great for a lot of people.

    My front tooth was knocked out, I still have all my other teeth and would really like to keep a full set of teeth as long as possible. Being the front tooth it makes it hard to eat or talk and causes a lot of pain. I guess I will need some kind of false tooth, where would I need to go to get one and do any dentists have sliding fees on this?
