Here, Dr. Singer talked about getting to know the women behind the burgundy and gold pompoms, and just how important the responsibility of caring for the Washington Redskins Cheerleaders has been to his career.
Question: Few pastimes are more exciting than a heated NFL football game. Has it been just as fun to work with the Washington Redskins Cheerleaders?
Dr. Singer: It certainly has been fun and exciting. But this work may be more far-reaching than people imagine. I have helped many of these talented women with dental problems that run the gamut including root canals, wisdom tooth extraction, Invisalign, TMJ, sleep apnea and of course full smile makeovers.
Question: What else might be people surprised to learn about professional cheerleaders?
Dr. Singer: It is easy to see how beautiful these women are. The side of them that most people don’t get see, and which I have been privileged to know, is that they are selfless, hard-working, bright and talented. These young ladies serve as role models to countless girls in the Washington, D.C. area. For me, watching their drive and hard work is inspiring. What we see on the field on game day is a great production. But the substance and the hard work behind the scenes is a marvel.
Question: Have you found through this work that cosmetic dentistry impacts more than just a patients smile?
Dr. Singer: Yes. On several occasions, I have worked with cheerleaders who had almost everything they needed to become stars. They just needed a little help in the smile department. Many of those smile makeover patients have gone on to compete in national beauty pageants, including Miss USA.
Question: What for you has been the best part of serving as the Official Cosmetic Dentist of the Washington Redskins Cheerleaders?
Dr. Singer: What I value the most is the friendships that have developed out of this association. Almost 15 years later, I count some of these fine ladies as my very closest and most loyal friends.
