Dr LeRoy Nisson – a 94 year-old retired dentist, now living in St. George, Utah – has shared his memories of treating Hollywood’s greatest stars (including Marilyn) in an interview with The Spectrum.
“Through the decades much has been made of Marilyn Monroe’s beauty. Dr. LeRoy Nisson, however, was only interested in her chompers.
‘Marilyn had the most beautiful set of teeth,’ says the 94-year-old retired dentist who counted the starlet among his patients…
…Among his many memories of Monroe was a time when she asked him to make her teeth whiter — a request extended from the director of her movie at the time. Nisson thought it was nonsense.
‘Yours are the best set of teeth I’ve ever seen,’ he remembers telling her. ‘Go back and tell that to your director.'”
