"As a child, I had excessive spaces between my teeth, most notably, the gap between my two front teeth in the upper arch . . . Sometimes, children would make unkind jokes . . . Dr. Pravin Patel became our family dentist in Toronto. Over time, my teeth gradually shifted and the front gap got much wider. Dr. Patel became more concerned and made recommendations . . . At 52 years old, I was fitted with braces on the upper and lower arches." (Beharie 78-82)

"Kudos to Dr. Patel, Dr. Pollit and staff, for the patience, encouragement and support conveyed to me during an important and challenging accomplishment. I will forever be grateful." (Beharie 84)
