I was at my wits end after suffering from severe complications with my prosthesis continuously breaking and not being able to chew or eat many solid foods over the last 4.5 years. He was sensitive to my needs and delivered new permanent prosthesis. I can now eat, chew and I have a beautiful smile! I have reclaimed my life because of his impeccable attention to detail! He's my hero!"
