At last it’s the weekend! I can hang up my wand for a bit and relax …. and this Sunday is the day I locate my dive gear starting with my regulator, chase out any spiders that may be residing in the mouthpiece (yuck!), clean

A Gift for the New Graduate

A Gift for the New Graduate

This morning a patient of mine came in to have her makeover checked (see Makeovers, makeovers Sept 26). Accompanying her was her daughter,  who  had fallen down on her face at the age of 12, causing her front tooth to die and discolour.

Iman came in to see if I could do anything for her, as not only was the tooth blackened but was tilted at an angle. To top it further she had missing lower front teeth leaving gaps in the bottom teeth, too. She had been told that treatment would be long and expensive as she had to have braces completed first, then only a crown.

 

I had already corrected the lower teeth before I remembered to take the photo!

I got so excited as I could see it was so easy to give her the smile she always wanted!

her graduation party tomorrow.

That was it!

I just HAD to make the schedule work somehow and give this gift for the new graduate….

After all, Graduation comes next to getting married in the most important events of one’s life time!

So we squeezed her makeover in after getting the OK from the next patient …. it’s not complete yet as she now has a temporary crown on til next week.

But the tooth it straight and only slightly yellowish compared to the rest.

This is my gift for Iman, a beautiful girl who now has a confident and beautiful smile to match her personality….. and she needn’t take photos from only her ‘good side’ from now on!!

A diving I will go!
