Dr. John Roberts

Dr. Roberts is a dentist. His job is a difficult one because of all the things that most people associate with dentistry. It’s sort of like working for the IRS or as an auto mechanic: no one really wants to have a reason to talk to you. But, if you have to see a dentist, Dr. Roberts is definitely a good one. And I would know—he’s been taking care of my teeth since I was in high school!
I traded this portrait for some dental work, and JoAnn Boatwright of the Hillsboro Argus wrote a story about our exchange.
