Alex needs braces

So I thought I'd share the beginnings of my braces journey. My whole life I've had bad dental phobia, going back to a bad experience I had getting my teeth cleaned when I was six years old.

Wow! In two months your teeth look great! I'm considering getting braces, and I'm inspired by how quick they seem to move your teeth.
