We are prepared to guarantee what we say, we charge right for what "we do. If you need a dentist or surgeon you would want the best or as good as the town aiforded. Why not secure a firm who can do your work well and take care of your interest? Many who read this know that as a rule the cheap est is the dearest. Let this warn you who have not had the experience of trying to get something for noth ing, that it is better to pay a fair price for good and reliable service than to pay the same price for unrelia ble service. Reliable service carries with it liability for any irregularity that might happen.
