Against the Odds: The story behind the treatment

Against the Odds: The story behind the treatment

(Posted on 24/07/20)

Our patient, Lewis has won £750 in holiday vouchers from the British Orthodontic Society for the story behind his brace treatment. The "Against the Odds" award goes to the best account of the transformational change that orthodontics can bring about in individuals.

Lewis's story:

"Lewis was a very hesitant and shy young man who found many social situations to be stressful and uncomfortable. Dental treatment had always caused him extreme anxiety-to the extent that seeing him in such distress led to his parents having to ask his Aunt to attend his orthodontic journey with him.

When he began his treatment at Rainford Orthodontics, St. Helens, his Aunt commented, " I have to say that the general feeling of myself and the team at the start of Lewis's journey was that it was highly unlikely that it would be completed successfully due to all the obstacles."

She continued, "How wonderful that Lewis has proved us wrong with his determination and the encouragement from the team at Rainford Orthodontics- he now has a beautiful smile and has grown in confidence, enabling him to deal with awkward situations with a calmness which has developed over the course of his dental journey,"

Many of our patients report an increase in self-esteem as a result of the care they have recieved.

If you would like to achieve the confident smile you've always wanted, contact us on 01744882222 and we'll be happy to help.
