Hey John, we realized quickly that it was more about who could write a automated voting script the fastest and not about coolness. So instead of playing that game on behalf of the Smile Stylist (one of our clients in the running) f:-) We chose to take the high road and get real votes from real people.  Playing fair only got 0.14% of the vote. Here's how people artificially inflate their votes with the Poll Daddy software. Click Here  PS I like your license plate. Just google America's Coolest Dentist and the clear winner comes up :) :) :)

Regarding the America's "Coolest" Dental Practice contest.  Merriam Webster defines "Cool" in this context as:  a) very good : excellent and b) fashionable, hip .  Here are some facts about the Smile Stylist and why they should win America's Coolest Dental Practice.

If they weren't both practicing dentists they could both be swimsuit models.  But they are, so lets highlight some impressive credentials.  Dr. Jason Olitsky recently achieved Accredited Status with the AACD, an accomplishment that shows dedication over and above to his profession.  Dr. Colleen Olitsky has recently published her book, The Naked Tooth that is presently being sold in Barnes and Noble and on


They have all kinds of happy patients that have given testimonials about their experience with the Smile Stylist.  Lets get to some more cool factors.  The love to do smiles and came up with a cool catchy name for their practice "Smile Stylist" and trademarked it.  The office itself is cool filled amenties like eye pillows, cozy neck wraps, aromatherapy candles and each smile makeover patient walks away with a professional photo shoot, done right in the dental practice.  Watch the Studio Tour

Fashionable and Hip can definitely be seen here.  How many practices have their patients model their smiles in a Fashion Show. Watch this video to see actual Smile Stylist patients modeling their smiles

In 2006 the Smile Stylist was already all over Youtube with his entertaining and funny videos.  How many dentists do you know that can beat box? Here's the Smile Stylist beat boxing for the leading women's running skirts brand.

Just when you wondered how much cooler can you get here's a video of the Smile Stylist in action as a Paparazzi in West Hollywood. See him in action 13 seconds into the video.


How much cooler can you get?  I know who gets my vote  :-)  Bring on the cool factor.

What makes a "cool" office?  Well, it starts from the moment you walk in the door, and are greeted by name, to the custom tour of our office, the discussion of the complimentary spa amenities we offer. Everything we do is in order to make our patients feel special, like family.  We offer specialty days throughout the year, where we bring in a masseuse for back and hand massages on Spa Day, offer fantiastic giveaways, car washes, gift baskets, etc.  We also hold Super Saturdays which we dedicate to our younger patents.  It is an entire day of fun, games and dentistry.  We have a bounce house, prizes, and even a dunk tank during warmer weather.  It makes the kids excited to come see the dentist, and that is the epitome of "cool."

our dental practice website pretty much says it all:

 being a father/son family practice in the outskirts of Music City, USA, nashville, tennessee, it is only fitting that we have a special fondness for music. not just country music, but good ol' rock n roll from the 60's, 70's, and 80's.  in fact, our reception area is adorned with autographed pieces from johnny cash to fleetwood mac to conway twitty and roy orbison.


the clinical area consists of 7 treatment rooms (one of which is set up just for kids). each operatory is identified by the artist whose framed and personally autographed guitar is displayed. the entertainment rotates frequently but may be highlighted by signed memorabellia from the rolling stones to eric capton to zz top. imagine the possibilities when you are informed, 'dr tabor, mrs jones is ready for you in the 'grateful dead room'!!

in addition to practicing what we feel is comprehensive reconstructive esthetic dentistry, we really have fun doing it! each new patient gets a really cool t shirt like from a concert with the 'tabor dental associates' logo proudly displayed. it is really cool to see folks all over town walking around as your own personal billboard.
