Since 2010, Southern Smiles Family Dentistry Doctors Genise Evans and Tauheedah Hollifield have ensured that couples get priority treatment in preparation for their weddings while exuding southern hospitality at its finest! Read below as Dr. Hollifield describes what makes their practice special and the best ways to care for your pearly whites.
SS: We wanted a digital dental practice with southern charm that would provide quality care for adults while welcoming their children to be a part of the experience!
EP: How’d you come up with your company name?
SS: The culture of the south is known for hospitality and being friendly and both Dr. Evans and I are Georgia natives. The company name also represents our patients being a part of our dental family.
EP: What makes Southern Smiles unique?
SS: Southern Smiles is unique because of the warm southern hospitality our patients experience from their first encounter with our office. Also, we truly are a family practice and are kid friendly. Our younger patients have their very own lobby area.
EP: What can patients expect from Southern Smiles?
SS: A patient will be encouraged no matter where they are with their dental health. Once patients exit our doors, they can expect to feel better about themselves than when they first came in. It is a priority for us to listen to each individual’s needs and address their unique concerns.
EP: What special services do you offer a bride and groom in preparation for their wedding day?
SS: In preparation for their big day, Southern Smiles offers a complimentary teeth cleaning for all patients of record. Husbands and wives are also given special courtesy of priority appointments to coincide with their wedding date.
SS: Most brides and grooms are interested in getting their teeth cleaned and whitened.
EP: In your professional opinion, are there any benefits to using whitening toothpaste?
SS: The results of whitening toothpaste have too many variances from one patient to the next and the benefits are less controlled than other whitening agents.
EP: Describe the benefits of getting professional whitening treatments compared to using an at-home self-whitening kit.
SS: Home whitening kits put most of the responsibility on the patient to be compliant and consistent with the instructions. With in-office professional whitening treatments, patients have the convenience of their teeth whitening being mostly completed before they leave the office.
EP: What do you most want people to know about good dental hygiene?
SS: Good dental hygiene is within reach for anyone who has routine dental check-ups and a sound regimen of flossing and using a great antiseptic mouth wash.
EP: What are your favorite memories from your own wedding day?
SS: My favorite wedding day memory is being able to enjoy my first meal with my new husband at our reception. Another favorite memory is the limousine ride we took around the city of Atlanta afterwards.
EP: What’s the best piece of marital advice you give to newlywed couples?
SS: My best piece of marital advice is to always remain friends and continue to date each other.
EP: What’s your event passion? Tell us why.
SS: My event passion is birthday parties because I love birthdays! I take pleasure in making people feel special and celebrated on their very own personal holiday. We all get older and experience birthdays, so why not enjoy the journey of each and every milestone?
