There is nothing more satisfying to us than having the opportunity to restore someone’s smile, and their confidence – regardless of how old they are. So we’re really excited to bring you Stevie Norris’ story.
I’m only in my twenties but I’ve never really had the best teeth and a lot of them were broken. So my dentist decided in July that I needed to get them all taken out, then recommended I go and see Tristan from Duchenne about replacement dentures.
I was told I needed to wait three months for my gums to heal before I could get my new dentures fitted. Not only was this the longest three months of my life, but I also had an important deadline looming – my sister was getting married in November and I was to be her chief bridesmaid!
Tristan understood my need for urgency and put a plan in place which helped speed up the process and ensure I was all ready for the big day.
If I hadn’t gone to Duchenne I wouldn’t have had my lovely new teeth in time for my sisters wedding, I’m sure of that. And if it wasn’t for Duchenne I wouldn’t be smiling as much as I do now!
I must admit I hadn’t realised just how much of a difference having new teeth would make to my life.
Now I am able to eat things I couldn’t even eat when I had my original teeth.
I was unemployed and didn’t have the confidence to go out and apply for jobs, but I’m much more confident now, and I’m back working. I never used to smile with my mouth open, now I can’t stop grinning – it just comes naturally.
My friends and family comment on how much more confident I am and how good I (and my new teeth) look. Tristan and the team at Duchenne Dental have completely changed my life!
