 Nilo Hernandez, Jr., DDS, DICOI, best-selling co-author of the book, The Will To Win, with Brian Tracy, and owner of the SmileCreator of Naples, encourages anyone who has been in isolation due to missing teeth to restore not only their smiles but their confidence in living and finding joy in life.


Naples, FL, August 31, 2020: Owner and CEO of Smilecreator of Naples, Dr. Nilo Hernandez, Jr., DDS, has posted a new blog on his website entitled, “More Than Smiles Implants Also Restore Confidence.” Dr. Hernandez acknowledges the great satisfaction and fulfillment he experiences through his work with implants.


Dr. Hernandez writes, “In my work as a dentist, with a specialty in implantology, I have experienced more fulfillment in my chosen profession than I could have ever imagined.” He continues, “Much of that fulfillment comes when I help restore a patient’s smile through the use of implants. What I have learned over the years, is that, yes, their smile is restored. But more importantly their confidence and joy in living is restored.”


According to Dr. Hernandez, “I have patients who, when they find me, have not been out of their homes in years because they have lost many or most of their teeth. They cannot chew real food and they are often in pain due to infections.” He goes on to add, “Some people end up this way due to fear of dentists. I consider these patients some of the most courageous people I’ve ever met. It takes courage, after hiding and being in pain for a long time to muster the energy and wherewithal to take action to change such depressing circumstances. And to overcome their fear of dentists.”
