End Result:: Fantastic – I've had porcelain veneers for over a decade--on my two front teeth. Kind of the most important ones. I'd had one veneer for 17 years and another for 7 years (the original one cracked, so I had to get a replacement). I don't remember either of the dentists who did the previous work--they were good, and the veneers were absolutely fine. I was much younger then, and the first time I had them done at the age of 21, my parents paid for it.
Creeping up on the age of 40, my veneers looked awful. My gums had receded over both teeth, so the veneers were uneven and varying degrees of my original discolored front teeth showed.
I had stopped smiling.
Denying myself one of the simplest joys in life, I decided to call a dentist. I did a Google search, like any lost but feeling informed person does. I landed on Smiles at Glenwood and called. $1100 a tooth. I thanked the receptionist who had given me a lot of her time and thorough information. The next week, I called another cosmetic dentist, and the price was even higher without any of the cordiality of Dr. Arrick's office. Another week went by (no smiling), and I called back to Smiles at Glenwood and said I wanted to do it.
The staff was so welcoming and kind. Every time I came back, one or more of them would say, "Are you excited?" And I always was. I took the plunge, and to be honest, the 2 weeks of the temporary pieces while we waited for the veneers was difficult. The temps weren't pretty at all.
But Dr. Arrick had me back to her office that first day of temporary composite on my teeth, within hours of me calling to say I thought the shade might not be right. Together we agreed to lighten the veneer one shade.
Today, Dr. Arrick finally put on my new porcelain veneers, and they are perfect. Her attention to detail in placing them was flawless, and she was with me from start to finish today. The veneers themselves look ten times better, but feel as comfortable and well-fitted as my old veneers.
Members of the staff gave me nice compliments, and once I saw myself smile again in the little mirror, I knew their compliments weren't just for the sake of patronizing a client. I smiled big again, and it looked good.
A smile is what you put into it, from the inside--it's your own moments of happiness or surprise or even nervousness. A smile is the most salient non-verbal expression of who you are. Having that thwarted is unfortunate. Having it renewed is wonderful.

AWESOMMME TEAM! – I was looking for a local dentist and came across Smiles at Glenwood....I am soooooo glad I did! I was welcomed in the reception area as though I have been a patient with their office for years. The atmosphere is very relaxing and calming. My son was in the office for a cleaning and Dr. Ashe treated my son as if he was hers and I truly, truly appreciated her comforting spirit. Smiles of Glenwood makes you feel like family not a patient and that is very, very RARE! I would highly recommend them to anyone!

Professionalism and compassion – Sep 28, 2010
I had to go into Smiles at Glenwood for an emergency procedure on the day after Labor Day. For an entire weekend I was experiencing tremendous pain. They immediately brought me in and realizing I was in such pain did everything possible to make me feel comfortable by alleviating the pain and repairing my tooth. I have always been careful in choosing a dentist but I feel good knowing that that Dr. Jelokhani and Dr. Arrick will be my dentists for a long time. They are the best!
Wonderful Dentists, caring staff! – I first visited Smiles at Glenwood based on city search reviews bec I was looking for a family dentist and no one would recommend their own dentist to me. I visited first and was sold immediately! Dr. Arrick and her staff were so wonderful, that I brought my 11 year old twins (one with Aspergers) to her as well. She has been able to work with my child with Asperger's when the pediatric dentist could not! I convinced my husband to try Smiles at Glenwood and now he is sold. He recently had an emergency situation and Dr. Jelokhani took him in and helped. He had to go to a specialist due to the extremely complex nature of the issue and while he was there, the staff called to check on him! They called him at home to make sure he was doing better. I have never experienced such a caring and extremely compotent dental practice! I highly recommend Smiles at Glenwood for your entire family!
I am now pain free – I first visited Smiles at Glenwood on a Monday because I had an awful tooth ache the entire weekend. I was nervous about everything and mostly nervous about the cost. They informed me up front how much the initial exam was and they examined my tooth and told me I needed a root canal and crown. From doing my own research I already knew that more than likely I would need that. They had an opening that next morning and I took it. From that appointment forward I have been pain free in my tooth. The whole process was split up so I didn't have to miss very much work. They were upfront with me about the costs and worked around my schedule so I could afford the treatment. Now I have my crown and it looks amazing. I have also decided to use them as my regular dentist as I did not have one for many years. I absolutely loved my experience at Smiles at Glenwood, the staff are friendly, Dr. Arrick is very nice and always makes sure your comfortable. Their office is nice, their location is great and I have finally found a home for all of my future dental care.
Great Ten Plus Years – I was introduced to this practice over ten years ago. I was impressed with the customer service that I received and the level of dental care then as well as today. I am equally impressed with the afterhours emergency response. I would highly recommend this practice to anyone that is looking for a great dentist.
High Quality Practice – Dr. Arrick's work is very high quality. My porcelain laminates and crowns look natural and perfectly match my other teeth. The staff is always friendly and efficient. Dr. Arrick often checks to make sure you are comfortable. They are considerate of your time, utilize up-to-date technology, are in a great location, and pay attention to detail.
Great Dental Team! – My family has not been going to Arrick and Associates for that long, but we are so happy to have found this excellent dental team! From the very beginning of booking appointments for me and my kids to meeting the friendly staff that did an amazing job of making my kids comfortable and even excited at their first dental experience. The assistant helped calm my fears and kept me laughing, and Dr. Arrick is a caring and gentle dentist. Thank you!
Service! Sincere!! Smiles!! > Satisfaction!!!! – This is one dental office where you don't have to wait, in fact, I've never been stuck in the waiting room more than ten minutes total in 12 years. Once you go back, the staff is extremely professional, gentile, and understanding. They use the latest in technology, so everything is efficient from the dental records to the billing. They happily accept my out-of-state dental plan which is a major plus. The hygenist staff are all well trained and experienced - it shows as they are able to clean our teeth without any uncomfortable moments. Over the years, I've probably been seen by everyone in the office at least once. The decor is especially delightful and free parking in front of the building or the parking lot immediately behind takes the worry out of parking 'downtown Glenwood'. The upscale neighborhood is in one of the classier areas in town.
