Smile transformation creates emotional journeys

The stress and worry during a complex dental case isn’t only felt by the patient – as all sorts of pressures, not least that of expectation, can fall directly on your friendly dentist’s shoulders.

But its worth it!

As a cosmetic and implant dentist, the greatest feeling in the world is when a mouth has been transformed and a person smiles for the first time with their new teeth.

The first reaction is revealed in the eyes – as bright as the north star, sometimes with tears, sometimes laughter and occasionally a stunned silence. But always there is a sincere joy at the lifting of that invisible veil of self-consciousness.

These are the jewels in my working life.

Nothing compares.


  1. As a patient of your Dad Michael, for long term Invisalign straightening, and yours Andrew, for complex preparation work, I am now feeling all of these more positive emotions IN ADVANCE. I feel safe in your hands, for the major cosmetic dentistry due to start in a few short months. I know I will be well looked after, as I always have been. You will make sure I won’t feel a thing, so Instead of natural fear, I just feel SO excited!!! I have been ashamed and embarrassed to smile, due to my dreadful teeth for most of my life. Now I can’t wait to be flashing a great big beaming smile (created by your good selves of course)!!!
