Smile Makeover Winner Revealed


Dr Gleave recently finished the treatment for our ABC4 contest winner. It was revealed on Good Things Utah last friday. Her name is Dannielle she is a Holladay Mom of 2 and teaches dance. Dr Gleave placed 10 porcelain veneers on the top teeth and placed composite fillings with some teeth whitening on the lower. Here’s a follow up letter received from Dannielle;

Hey doc!

It’s just Dannielle, your smile makeover girl! Hey, I haven’t got a lot of time to be able to talk to you since when I usually do see you I am a little out of it!

I just haven’t got to truly express my gratitude for you picking me to receive this amazing gift. You have no idea how much it means to me. Although I have been terrified of dental visits, you have made the appointments comfortable and really nice. You are great at what you do. This has been something I never ever could have done on my own. Every morning I used to brush my teeth and be disgusted and worry about what the heck I was going to do with them. Almost every night I was in so much pain. To not have to deal with ANY of that anymore has been an amazing feeling and a huge relief!!! My teeth look amazing so far and I am really looking forward to tomorrow (nervous of course, but excited!!!). I can’t wait to see them. I can never thank you enough for your generosity and caring and what you have done for me and my life. You are really great and someone I will NEVER forget. Thank you!

All of this literally couldn’t have come at a better time. With everything my son has went through, financially- I am just spent. With all of the medical bills I have just had to come to terms with that I will probably never (or not for a very long time) be able to own a home or a car…anything really. I separated from my husband back in October and moved out with my boys to Holladay. Although we love it, it has been such a tough time supporting them on my own…on top of all the other stuff. My business has suffered a lot with the economy, most people losing their jobs really don’t have extra money for dance lessons- so I have had to really look at my job and wonder if I can support my family with it. Bottom line- just been feeling down and like nothing was really working out. And then all of a sudden this happened. It was the first thing in a LONG time that has went my way and gave me something to get excited about. It just brightened things and it just has been a very special experience. And it was all because of you, so I just want you to know you have changed my life and made things better for me in many ways I can’t explain.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!!!!!!!

Your friend always! J
