Various Treatments Patient - Jo

“The treatments that I have had done here are six extractions, implants, bridge, and graphs. Life before having these treatments done for me was particularly upsetting because I never had any issues with anything to do with my teeth or dental or anything as such. So when I was diagnosed with gum disease, it was absolutely devastating to me. I lost all my confidence. I didn’t smile anymore. I only smiled with my mouth rather than my teeth. So to me, it was devastating.

But as soon as I walked in, as soon as I was greeted by the receptionist and when I met David and when I met Connie and when I met Gail, everybody was just absolutely marvellous with me. They were so caring, empathetic, and they really, really put me at ease, right from the word go. I couldn’t have asked for a better introduction to the surgery because I was absolutely one big bag of nerves.

I can’t stop smiling, which is something that I haven’t been able to do for the last five years. I’m getting my confidence back. I’m learning how to smile again. And it has quite honestly changed me as a person. When I first saw that smile, I couldn’t believe it. I saw somebody looking back at me in the mirror that I could see 10 years ago. And I had my first steak two weeks ago. And it was literally the most delicious thing I’ve ever eaten.”
