Not only the appearance of their smile, but also how the smile changes their personality.

Family is everything to Marie. She is a single mother of two adult sons, and cares for her own mother as well. They are a very tightly knit, Italian family whom, to this day, still enjoy their Sunday family dinners. Fall is her favorite time of year because of all the trimmings that come with it. While she is not donating her time to Little League baseball and the Boy Scouts, she loves to cook, bake, and watch sports.
