Patient Spotlight: A "Hope"-ful Journey

Joe and Cynthia Griner have been blessed with four healthy boys ranging from ages 24 to 11. But when they decided to add a little “pink” to their bunch, they discovered it wasn’t as easy as it used to be.

Cynthia, the current Mrs. Elite American Dream, is the picture of perfect health. However, at 48, her eggs were not optimal.

Another satisfied patient!

We love what we do, but getting notes like these make our jobs even sweeter!

Fancy "Running" Into YOU here!

Lisa, Krys and Denise

Our front desk manager, Krys, is an avid tri-athlete. On any given weekend, you can find her at one of our local (or even far away) marathons, half marathons, or triathilons. 

When she started working for us, she quickly joined the local "tri" groups in the community and met one of our patients, Lisa. They quickly became friends outside the office and often train together.

At this past weekend's Turtle Man Race in Jupiter, Krys and Lisa ran into yet another one of our patients, Denise! 

We are so proud of this dynamic threesome! Way to go, ladies!

It's National Tooth Fairy Day!

Ever wonder where the story of the Tooth Fairy came from? 

Turns out it originated from a play written by Esther Watkins Arnold in 1927. They play was called The Tooth Fairy and was performed in schools. At the same time, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "proved" his claim that fairies and gnomes were real by "verifying" pictures of two little girls surrounded by fairies. How he verified this is unknown, however, the children of the world were convinced and soon were leaving their teeth under pillows for the hopes of a coin or two.

During WWII, Bob Balfe, who was a columnist for the Palm Beach Post, wrote about how the Tooth ...
