While spring is in the air, this season is a bit different than any spring that we have experienced before. For the past three months, many of us spent our days inside of our homes instead of enjoying the beautiful blooms, chirping birds, and long days on the beach. As things begin to open again, we are trying our best to navigate this new way of living, and finding a new “normal.” Something seems off. And it is. It’s the new world we’re living in due to COVID-19. Knowing this, it comes as a surprise to not be able to pin down Robin Greco for an interview to learn more about her story.
Beyond Exceptional Dentistry recently launched a new campaign to take a deeper dive into the changed lives of our patients. We hear the stories and challenges of every patient that has walked through our doors for the last forty years, and it really is beyond exceptional. We share these stories with you because we are so overcome with the life changes our patients have. It’s night and day. They can live again. They can play with their grandkids again. They can or have something to smile about again.
So I started chatting with Robin to confirm the best time for an interview. She shares “I’m getting masks ready to deliver right now. Can we do this later?” Masks? I know Robin’s known to be crafty but thinking she must be delivering masks to her husband’s medical practice. Dr. Richard Greco is a well-known plastic surgeon in town. There’s been a shortage of masks due to this dreaded virus. That must be it.
I asked if she would mind sharing a photo of herself from before her procedure at our office. “I will look,” she laughs. “I’m not in many photos because of my teeth. My hubby says ‘‘The kids won’t know they had a mother!’ since I took all the photos. I hated being in front of the camera so I was always the one volunteering to take the photos. Now I’m known as the photobomber!”
Robin shared this picture. “This was typical of my photos. I usually wouldn’t smile or show my teeth.”
“And then this happened!” she said pointing to her beaming smile. Her teeth are perfection and her happiness radiates.
“During a recent office visit, Dr. Reeves noticed my bite was misaligned again. He noticed it. I recently fell and didn’t think anything of it. I just love him! I can smile because I feel good, am no longer in pain and feel confident about my smile.”
“Robin came to Beyond Exceptional Dentistry with several issues. She had a nightly regime that would help her sleep and reduce the pain, but it still wasn’t a good solution. She had constant pain and discomfort. On top of that she wasn’t happy with her smile,” Dr. Ryan M Reeves, DDS shared. “After our doctors listened to her challenges, we checked her bite. It was misaligned. We corrected the functional problem and the results are evident. Robin is a new person.”
And that gives us something to smile about.
Robin Greco doesn’t mind smiling for the camera now. Here she is as a focal point in one of our ads in TOCAL Magazine, shared in the Sea Island and St. Simons communities just south of Savannah.
