TACOMA'S OLDEST
DENTAL OFFICE
Our of fife, ilic Electro
JDental Parlors, will soon
be starting on its 17th
year of continuous busi
ness in Tacoma. During
this time we have been the
envy of the Trust Dentists,
especially those that lack
the knowledge and ability
to build a business on their
merit. These Trust Den
tists go out of their way to
knock ns cither in their of
fice or through the news-
p.ipcrs. The only reason
thoy have is that we give
the people better dentistry
for less money. Tf we
would charge the Trust
Dentists' prices and do in
ferior work they would not
knock. Why should we
care? Our office started
with 2 dental chairs nnd
now we have 10 dental
chairs and the finest
equipped dental office
west of Chicago. With onr
up-to-date equipment we
are able to do the small
est to the largest dental
operation at a saving of
time and expense to the
patient.
PLATES
We make plates of every knowm
material and our prices are (ro«
$5 up. If you have had trouble
wearing plates, don't let that die
courage you, because we can
make you plates that you can
wear and guarantee them. We
are the largest - plate makers on
the coast, but never too busy tn
show our platan and advise yon.
TKKTH KXTRA-rJTHD
We extract teeth without hurt
ing you by our own method.
