Mazlin the dad-to-be

Mazlin had been too scared to see a dentist for years. Just before I left for my dive trip his wife persuaded him to come in for a chat to see what I could do for him … he was about to be a dad! The birth of

Sabaruddin finally closes the gap

I have known Sabaruddin for at least 15 years. He used to sublet an office premise from me in the Taman Melawati clinic together with his partner Mustafa. Yesterday Sabaruddin came in as a result of a call inviting him to return for a check up and clean

Steven’s Makeover.

Steven’s Makeover.

Steven had written to me on the blog before I left for Manado and sent me a photo of himself by email. We set up the appointment for Friday to either do the makeover, if I had the time, or just discuss his options.

When I saw the photos on Monday I emailed him back saying that it was easy peasy and I’d probably be able to do him pretty quick and he wouldn’t need to do a whitening either (that’ll save him atleast RM800!!)

IMG_2118So today … Steven came in as my last patient, all ready to have his makeover for the weekend!

Steven felt his case was difficult … ah but I assured him it was not …. and it was going to be absolutely painless too!

His wife had also booked in for a makeover next week so I guess he was going to be my test! A test to see if I really deliver the goods, ie a beautiful smile in one hour or so AND a painless makeover … before his wife has her turn.

We took the initial photos after I promised it would only be his smile and not a frontal!

I explained that he probably needed only 4 composite veneers and it would brighten up his smile especially after I do the clean up first. I was going to give him a smile that looked absolutely natural.

We chatted about the dive trip and our respective jobs whilst I did my stuff and waved my magic wand! Steven said he had waited more than 20 years for the magic!

A little more than an hour later ( I really took my time) it was done!

Look who's smiling now!!

The verdict …. a beautiful smile that was totally painless, fast and one very happy patient. Steven had a smile he could show off during the weekend!

And next week is his wife’s turn!
