We are back this week under regular hours and can't wait to see you! #cleaning #teeth #stelzman #tennessee #snow #denitst #tn #dental #morristown #doctor #hamilton
The two most dreaded dental procedures: Shots, and Impressions. We strive to make our shots painless and our impressions gag-less. It's always funny to see dentistry being made fun of on TV and pop culture. Behind every laugh is a little bit of truth. Take a look at this funny impression video. #hamilton #dentist #doctor #morristown #dental #tn #stelzman #tennessee #denitst #laugh #humor
No one is ever too old for a snow day. We hate that we had to cancel appointments, however we always want our patients and staff to be safe. There may more inclement weather next week and we will continue to update our facebook and website. Here is a photo of Dr. Hamilton and his wife enjoying the snow at their home. This next photo is baby Callie. Our assistant Christy sent us this photo of Callie enjoying her first snow. It looks like she absolutely loves it. Our hygie
Do you wear a partial and hate the silver clasps? New materials exist in dentistry today that allow the removal of metal and silver clasp. The clasps are replaced by pink flexible plastic that is color matched to your gums. The partial will blend in with your exisitng gums and teeth and is virtually impossilbe to see.

Believe it or not, advertizing in dentistry is relatively new. Fifty years ago it was illegal for dentist to advertize in Tennesee. This was a mandate regulated by the state dental board.

Times have changed, and Dr. Stelzman has always been on the cutting edge of advertizing in the dental field.
We hope everyone of you had a perfect Holiday Season! We are back in the office for the first working day of the new year. We are here Monday through Thursday 8-5. As always we love to see emergencies and children. We are also currently accepting new patients. Start your new year off right by scheudling a cleaning or new patient exam today. We look forward to serving you in 2016!!! #emergency #dental #dentist #morristown #rootcanal #toothache
