Does the Work
My practice is limited to high
class Dentistry only at Prices
Every One Can Afford.
He Serves Himself
Most Who Serves
the Public Best
A stream never rises higher than its source, nor does a business
grow greater than its builder.
Some people have marveled that I have built so large a practice
in a few short years, and Dental Supply Houses have commented on
the fact that I buy more and better Dental Supplies than any half
dozen competitors, some of whom have been practicing here for years.
I am fair enough to admit that I do not deserve special credit
for the feat because the KIND of competition I have had made my
task easy; in fact, I feel that many up-to-date, competent Dentists,
possessed of the requisite skill and training, who. would display the
courage born of knowledge and ability, could "have done the same
thing and perhaps in less time.
If I seem so far AHEAD of the procession, it is because others
are SO FAR BEHIND.
I saw the shortcomings of the system employed
here by the old-time dentists, I knew the public put
up with it simply because there was little choice
between the methods of the old schools, and I knew
that the two greatest evils of that system were
exorbitant prices and unnecessary pain.
I knew that a firsteclass gold crown (equal in material, fit and
wear to gold crowns for which other Dentists charged $8- to $15)
could be made at a profit for $5.00 UNDER PROPER CONDI
TIONS, and I knew that fully half (and probably more) of the pain
inflicted in the Dental Chair was unnecessary and the result of ig
norance, carelessness or plain brutality.
I had the courage of my convictions and I told my story in the
papers and in my office and I MADE GOOD, BECAUSE:
What I told the people was the TRUTH
And I proved it to them
The work is giving perfect satisfaction and has
stood the test of time
