Braces Instead of Burgers

An orthodontist brings vintage style to the office

Drive-in restaurants sell crispy fries, creamy milkshakes, and … permanent retainers? This 1950s-style diner in Conway, Ark., could fool you.
Although this orthodontist’s practice appears to be a restaurant from the street, hungry visitors looking for lunch will be in for a surprise. Orthodontist and car enthusiast Dr. David Meyers designed his 3,800-square-foot office to resemble an old-timey drive-in diner and service station — complete with hot rods.
The memorabilia on the walls takes patients back to a simpler time — until that drill starts whirring. The reception desk is built to look like a vintage woodie wagon, and the two couches in the waiting area were converted from a 1956 Oldsmobile and a pink 1959 Cadillac. Luckily, the dental assistants don’t wear roller skates.
