Rido D

What an incredible smile transformation. I really love how this is life-changing.

My patient Rido had not been to the dentist in 25 years and smokes 1 pack a day. He said his wife hadn’t kissed him in over 25 years because of his teeth. He had fears about going to the dentist ever since he had a bad experience as a kid. His wife is a patient of mine and she was the one who encouraged him to come in and see me.

I was able to effectively communicate with him and earn his trust in me. I walked him through the treatment plan and explained to him step by step what I needed to do to restore his dental health.

I did a full mouth reconstruction on him. Amazingly enough, I was able to restore all his upper teeth with porcelain crowns without having to do any root canals or extractions in the upper teeth. When he came back for a check-up, he told me that he quit smoking, had started eating better and exercising, and had lost some weight. The smile makeover gave him a huge boost of confidence and now he has a much brighter outlook on life.

He told me that he can’t believe all the compliments he has been receiving daily. He thought this would never happen to him and how a healthy and gorgeous smile can make a difference. He is enjoying his life more now and his wife had started kissing him again. He expressed so much gratitude to me for what I did for him.

It’s really wonderful to witness such a dramatic life transformation in a person. I’m grateful when I have an opportunity like this where I get to change people’s lives.
