What case are you most proud of and why

Orthodontics can provide massive transformations for patients, not only their dental appearance but often an increase in confidence with their new smile. One patient in particular has been unable to find anyone to treat her due to her phobia of anything in her mouth. Joint working with Donald has enabled her to have orthodontic treatment. She has had a massive improvement in her dental appearance and she appears to be much more confident
