Before Fast New Smile, life was pretty painful. I had a lot of really crazy teeth issues, and a lot of broken teeth. There was just really no escaping it. I feel like I would go to the dentist, spend a fortune, and get some things fixed. And before I could wind up back for the next phase of the appointment, something else would happen.
And also just being kind of embarrassed, you know, when you are someone who does care about your appearance and what you portray to the world.
I called Fast New Smile because it was kind of my last-ditch effort. I actually called originally, because I had kind of thrown in the towel and given up and was actually coming in for regular dentures.
I was so glad when I came in and Dr. Almasri talked me out of that and talked to me into a Fast New Smile because I think for my age and for my lifestyle, it was just much more comfortable and convenient not having to deal with taking teeth in and out.
When I came in for my consult, I think the deciding factor was really just comfort. I think everybody in the office from start to finish just makes you feel really comfortable and really at ease. Of all of the dental providers that I had been to before, I felt like Dr. Almasri was just the most thorough. He really was able to walk me through every step of the process and answer every question, and it made me feel really comfortable, so I signed up that day.
My surgery day experience was actually great. I was super nervous, and I was met by the surgical assistant who was getting me ready. She really just put me at ease, every step of the way.
Honestly, it was so much easier than I thought it was going to be. I don’t think people realize how much of an imposition bad teeth are on your life. When you fix that, or you finally get to the end of your rope where you’re kind of like, “Where do I go next?”, and you find somebody who has the answer for you, it’s a game-changer.
