For as long as I can remember I hated to smile.
I was always the one standing at the back of a photo, the one who at the last moment looked down.
I hated my teeth, I felt ashamed, embarrassed and ugly.
Then miracle of miracles you offered me a lifeline, a chance to change my life. I could have for the first time, lovely even teeth. I would be able to smile.
You talked me through step by step the treatment that was required and even gave me a total cost.
Although I have always had, and still do to a lesser degree, a deep fear of dentists I felt reassured and trusted you.
I knew for me it would not be easy and would be an uncomfortable and quite a lengthy process.
I had the best of reasons to go ahead at this time - my three small grandchildren. I did not want any of them to look at me and ask why my teeth were so funny. I did not want them to be ashamed of me when I attended their school shows and concerts.
So, with the best motive in the world I decided to go ahead and put myself in Zaki's magic hands.
You Zaki, were kind, caring and so patient with me that it made the treatment so much easier.
How glad and grateful I am now when I look in the mirror; that the beautiful, even teeth that I see actually belong to me. What a joy to keep them clean and sparkling. My friends and family cannot believe how different I look and how much more confidence I have. I now no longer dread meeting and talking to people, especially for the first time.
You have changed my life!
Words cannot express my thanks to you all but THANK YOU!
