For the first time ever...Netflix has recently rebooted their hit TV show, Queer Eye, with a new Fab Five and for the first time in Queer Eye history, they've incorporated a smile transformation! For those of you who have not yet seen the show, Queer Eye is a series where 5 style experts take over the life of a deserving individual, in this case, 2 individuals in need of lifestyle makeovers where they focus on 5 key lifestyle categories, hence the Fab Five. There's food and wine specialist Antoni Porowski, interior designer Bobby Berk, grooming consultant Jonathan Van Ness, fashion designer Tan France and culture expert Karamo Brown. Together these 5 men make dreams come true and in season 3, episode 3, the Fab Five touched the lives of Jones sisters, Mary and Deborah.

Holli strongly believes a new smile can and does make a lasting impact on the lives of patients like Mary Jones.
