I can still remember the day I had my braces removed. There’s something magical about finally seeing the results of your hard work as a patient. All of the brushing and flossing, avoiding sticky candy, and not to mention coming to see the orthodontist every 8-12 weeks. It’s a pivotal moment in the life of a child and an exciting accomplishment for adults who have decided it’s never too late to start enjoying the smile they’ve always wanted.
The opportunity to work with people is such a tremendous blessing. Hearing their stories about why they finally made the decision to achieve a spectacular smile or how the changes have improved their lives is one of the greatest rewards of our profession.
Recently, a patient of ours, Christy, gave us her permission to share her before and after pictures and tell her story about the process of improving her smile before her wedding day. Christy is one of those patients who lights up a room just by her presence, so you can imagine how thrilled we were to help her improve her smile. She has a contagious enthusiasm and positive personality, so it is no surprise that she has devoted her life to helping others… she’s a teacher!
When Christy finally had her braces removed (in plenty of time, before the wedding) she brought some wedding photos to the office to share with our team. It is such an honor to know that we played a small part in helping Christy and her new husband enjoy the wedding they always dreamed of and have wedding photos that capture the enthusiasm and energy of such a wonderful time in their lives.
Christy serves as an advocate for other patients who are contemplating straightening their teeth before their wedding. “Just do it! You won’t regret it, I promise.”
Congratulations Christy!! – Team Burleson
