- Braced for a winning smile
"I wouldn't even attempt the treatment if I didn't think I could sort all that," Dr Moghanchi assured me, realising that playing to the cosmetic insecurities of middle-aged women wasn't going to cut the mustard with me. But I knew that braces could have a dramatic effect. Zoe, my 13-year-old daughter, had just said goodbye to her train tracks and hasn't stopped smiling since. It's not just that her teeth look straighter; the whole of her lower face is improved.

- Quad helix ...
"I’ve been wearing my Quad Helix since last September. When Sam first recommended a Quad Helix, I was a bit nervous about what it would be like. I had never had a brace of any type before. I didn’t know anyone else who had the same thing past or present. I didn’t know how it would affect my every day life like speaking and eating. But Sam was very helpful and reassured me with lots of information. Once I actually had it in, it was a little uncomfortable as every kind of brace is expected to be. At home I emailed Sam and he came back quickly with helpful advice. It was a bit hard to eat at first but after a few days I got used to it. My speech wasn’t affected at all and I could forget about it a bit. Very quickly the problems were gone and I could already see the difference in my teeth. So thank you Sam, for my new smile!"
