"Short or long-term influences, Texas AGD dentists, business people, or just friends - I encourage everyone to seek out individuals to help make the path of life more fulfilling, whether that be in greeting life's challenges yourself or in helping someone else along his or her path. Healthy relationships along the way add such richness to our journey. Seek and enjoy!"
