When meeting someone, they say you only get one first impression, and one major aspect of how you look and how you present yourself is your smile. While some were born with strong, straight teeth, that isn’t always the norm, but today, that can change. According to Dental Associates, “Over 4 million people in the U.S. wear braces, and 25% of these individuals are adults.” If you’re one of the almost 1 million adults that are considering some sort of dental procedure, finding a trusted, qualified dentist should be at the top of your list.
Dallas Cosmetic Dentist Mary Swift, D.D.S. is one such dentist. She’s been a trusted partner of Prime Women for many years, and has been featured in our webinar series as well as taken the time to answer many questions we’ve had over the years regarding cosmetic dentistry. Let’s learn a little more about her.
Recipe for Success
The recipe for Dr. Swift’s success is actually pretty simple. She’s known for her caring and educational approach and her ability to listen to each patient’s desires. She also works to involve each patient in the development of their own unique treatment plan so they can work together. This causes the patient to feel comfortable and empowered in the journey to better oral health. In addition, Dr. Swift’s customized smile creations work to optimize each patient’s facial bone structure and personality, giving them a unique smile that’s all their own and allows them to shine through.
Dr. Swift builds smiles that not only are contagious but that are designed to last. A good smile is comparable to a house in that without a good foundation, neither will last as long as it should. To ensure a lasting smile, Dr. Swift makes sure that both oral health and teeth alignment are optimized before cosmetic work is placed so each patient’s return on investment in their smile is maximized.
Dr. Swift’s attention to detail with each and every patient allows her to bring them the smile and confidence they are hoping to attain; one that will last and keep them looking and feeling their best for years to come.
About Dr. Swift
Dr. Mary Swift received her Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree from the Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas, TX. She was certified in laser proficiency by the Academy of Laser Dentistry (ALD), is a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, and is a Charter Member of the Dallas Study Club. She continues to complete advanced education and finds that staying at the forefront of the evolving processes and procedures is integral to her success.
With over 30 years in the dental profession, Dr. Swift is known for her candor, chairside manner, and her advanced dental and cosmetic techniques. She founded Dallas Laser Dentistry in 1997 as a modern private dental practice, and since the beginning, she’s focused on providing a great patient experience and top-quality patient care utilizing innovative techniques.
An innovator in dentistry practices in Dallas, she has a continued focus on outstanding patient service and top-quality (and often ahead-of-its-time) care. She is the co-founder of Hopeful Smiles (affiliated with Attitude & Attire), which is dedicated to helping women who have gone through tough times regain their dignity, job interviewing skills, and a smile that will enable them to be considered for more than entry-level work.
While Dr. Swift is renowned for the high quality of work that she does, she’s also active philanthropically. She’s currently working with Texas Mission of Mercy to help prepare a free clinic that’s scheduled in conjunction with Veteran’s Day. During the weekend of November 4-5, they’ll provide dental work for veterans, free of charge, which is a necessary service because the VA doesn’t provide dental care.
Awards and Accolades
While the awards are distinguished and many, that’s never been Dr. Swift’s focus. Since beginning her career, she’s always emphasized a desire to make her patients feel comfortable and safe in a dental environment, which isn’t always easy. She’s strived to change the lives of those that trust her with their care by fixing dental issues that affect their daily lives and by giving them the confidence that a bad smile can steal away. While she certainly isn’t looking for credit or kudos, we’re quite proud to be associated with a doctor that is not only excelling but is moving the quality of care in her field forward exponentially. So, we’ll take a look at some of the accolades she and her staff have received.
Dr. Swift and the staff at Dallas Laser Dentistry have received the Consumer’s Choice Award for Cosmetic Dentistry for the last eleven years (2011-2021), the only dental practice in DFW to receive such an honor. Dr. Swift was named by Texas Monthly as one of their “Super Dentists” for the last nine years (2014-2022), and she was also named by readers of Dallas Living magazine as Dallas’ Best Cosmetic Dentist (2014). But that’s not all, she was recognized by D Magazine as Dallas’ Best Cosmetic Dentist (2020/2021/2022).
Nationally recognized as a leader in cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Swift is also the co-author of A Cup of Coffee with 10 of the Top Cosmetic Dentists in the United States, which became an Amazon #1 best seller.
