GUEST POST WRITTEN BY DANIELLE JONES
"The first thing I notice about a person is their smile and manicure. If either of these are looking less than perfect, I question their reliability." This is a direct quote from someone I once worked with. Needless to say, at the time it felt very personal having suffered some very apparent dentistry issues from the age of 21. I felt anxious and uncomfortable - and it certainly wasn’t the first time. When I turned 21 I was at university in London and having the time of my life. Then out of the blue, as these things tend to happen, I had an accident that changed everything; it resulted in knocking out some of my front teeth and damaging others. It was the end of the sociable and chatty journalism student I once was and instead a dark period of time in my life began. It was a time when I would avoid all social interaction and spend my days covering my mouth, calculating whether or not I could eat certain things.
