Dr. Jerry Copeland
It’s easier to get my four-year-old son to go to the dentist than to go to a park. That’s because his dentist is Dr. Jerry Copeland. Never have I met a nicer person without being suspect of underlying issues. It’s not just me, every client I know feels the same. He’s been described as Mr. Rogers, or Tom Hanks, or Tom Hanks playing Mr. Rogers. He is the right balance of goofy, sweet and professional. He explains things like a teacher, not like someone who knows way more than you do even though he most definitely does. mykidsteeth.com —Stephanie Powers
