The final results! November 19, 2008.
So what do you think?
I am so thankful. I never thought I would have this beautiful of a smile. Honestly, I didn't. I always dreamed of it and would say, "Some day, when I get my mouth fixed............", all the time knowing in the back of my mind that it would never happen. It just makes me cry. I have so many people to thank!
First of all, I thank my Mom and Dad! Unknowingly, it was a good thing that you were never able to afford to "get my mouth fixed." I believe that if it had been done back then, I would probably have major problems today. Everything happens for a reason, and it's obvious that God had better plans for me. I'm confident that if I had had this procedure done 20 years ago, I would not have the results that I have gotten today. I would have had surgery and I would have metal plates and screws holding my face together. I'm sure I wouldn't have been as appreciative then as I am now.
Second of all, I have to thank Scott, for believing that this was a good idea and supporting my decision to go ahead with the treatment. Without him, I wouldn't have been able to do this.
Lastly, but definitely not least, I have to thank the doctors who made this dream come true. If it weren't for Dr. Heidi, I would have never taken the first steps necessary to achieve these final results. I am so fortunate that I had a top notch surgeon and orthodontist, right here, in Bismarck, North Dakota. Who ever would have thought that this could happen in this part of the world?
