Cindy Horvath of Buchanan 
loves  going to the dentist!

That's right Santa! Cindy belongs on your "Good" list because she never misses or cancels a dental appointment! That's because after Cindy's appointment, she always visits her "Happy Place" which is right next door to her dentist's office...
The Village Shoppes!

We can tell two things about Cindy by her beautiful smile...
1.) She's at her "Happy Place".
2.) Her dentist is doing a fabulous job!
