Ike Heaphy

July 12, 2012

It’s not easy being liked when you’re a dentist. Folks usually don’t take kindly to getting their gums jabbed, their teeth scraped and their whole mouth spread so wide it would seem to fit something the size of a Volvo. But Ike Heaphy manages to make getting your annual cleaning—or, gasp, something more extensive—a pleasant experience. He and his courteous staff work efficiently and offer useful tips to keep your visits free of any extra drama. Here’s one we learned firsthand: Make sure to brush that little nook behind your bottom front teeth, right where the tip of your tongue rests; it’s a prime spot for gunk to build up and often overlooked.
