You have got to be kidding me, its been a month!! Well just in case you missed it my teeth are all finished!!! And I will never be the same!
On Monday, August 20th, all of the final teeth were placed and my new smile complete! Absolute best day of my life, so far!! While I was waiting to go in the lab genius (teeth maker), Joe, came in the door with my new teeth in their little blue boxes! He was excited to see the finished product and came back later for pics!
Then, Dr. Sarina greeted me in the lobby with a party hat and a party clapper, yelling and cheering me on! I needed cheerleaders in my life but who knew what I would get through this amazing teeth experience. She also placed a special party hat on my head and we were off! Dawn, her dental assistant extrodinair was in the exam room, waiting with her party hat and party favors!

(I started this whole process at UMKC
until she told me about Dr. Sarina)
My next surprise came within an hour of the appointment beginning! Around the corner I spied my student dentist from UMKC, Stefanie! The whole story began with her just a year ago! She is also the reason I met Dr. Sarina and wow will I ever be thankful to her for that! I am one very blessed woman! Stefanie even drove all the way from Nebraska to see the final cementing of my teeth! She graduated in May, getting married in Sept, and off to be a dentist in Arizona where her husband is a doctor! Whew busy girl, I was so excited to see her again!

So one by one each of the teeth/pieces were cemented down to the final implants on the top right side. This included celebration after each one! 13 units total. Two crowns on the bottom left, one full bridge on the top left, one veneer on the top left, then on to the right side. Two crowns on the bottom right, one crown on the top right, one veneer on the top right, two lovely implants on the top right! Dr. Sarina and her assistant were still wearing their party hats as they worked and kept bumping each other. It was so much fun, full of giggles, excitement, and love! I am so blessed and overwhelmed by the amazing experience I had!

So amazing michelle! I am so proud of you and your perseverance! Such an incredible women. Love you lots.
How exciting it must have been! Your doctor is so nice that she even gave you a special party to cheer you up with your new teeth implant experience. You must be very excited to smile and show off your new teeth after the implant. Anyway, you look beautiful in the last photo!
That’s the smile you deserved! ^_^ All thanks to Stephanie for introducing you to her doctor. I hope there are more people like her who find a way to support others despite their busy schedule. Anyway, thank you for inspiring me; it’s not an easy journey, but your determination keeps you together. Proper maintenance is always the key to keep your pearly whites strong.
It was very sweet of your doctor to host a party for you .I'm about to undergo a dental implant procedure next month, and I'm going to invite my friends and have a teeth party as well! Hahaha! It's surely one thing that is worth celebrating. I'm so excited to have that beautiful smile too!
