Dave, great story and execution of your dream. One of the most creative, fun and colorful offices I've seen, in a field where sameness, stale, and "sterile" seem to rule. Very well done and thanks for sharing it with us. I showed it to two of my daughters who work in dental offices and they both said "how cool it would be to work in that office". Keith

I'm an endodontist in S. California and I've got to say id rather spend an hour in your office getting worked on than an hour in mine working any day. Amazing! Submit this to Dentistry Today, it would make the magazine for sure. You deserve the credit and the business that should follow. Maybe we should have a dental hot rod club of some kind? Cheers. Well done! Way to bring your passions together.

Very cool, and it will be the only orthodontist's office in the county that becomes a H.A.M.B. Must stop at when in the area attraction. I expect it won't be long before we see a road trip photo of a Hamber's car posed out front.

The kids have to love it too.

Man, incredibly good job on the building, space and the couches too. I'm an architect, so I know what it takes to be able to pull something like that off. Looks like the contractor did a pretty good job as well. Must have been a good team all around. Nice work!

Simply incredible! Great ideas and execution!
My 12 year old will soon start with braces. I'd give you my business if you were in Socal! I'll show him this thread as he also loves old cars.

You know that you're going to see an increase in the number of "gray beards" wanting braces! Excellent, sir.

I had braces as a kid for more years than I care to remember and hated them - I only wish I could have gone to your place instead of where I went! This is just spectacular - what a fantastic way of involving your hobby with your totally unrelated/different business in such a fun way! It is just unreal, imaginative, creative - very, very well done!

Incredible vision. Hopefully the environment will be more inviting so those with axiety towards going to the dentist will have a more enjoyable experience. It would be interesting to see how your patients feel with the change and see if it makes any difference with them. Great work.
