The best part of my profession is transforming patients’ smiles. When I see that look of amazement on someone’s face as they realise they can smile confidently in public without holding their hand over their mouth, it really lights me up inside. This happens every day, but it is always so rewarding to see that lift in self- esteem. Some of my patients really spend a long time looking at everything in the mirror, trying to work out how the magic was done. It really does feel that I am a magician some days when you get to that big reveal and deliver that straight white smile. The funny thing is that these transformations are just part of the job, to excel at providing high quality dentistry. I am in a position of trust, someone has put their smile in my hands and believes in the skills I can provide to get the best results.
