    "It has been a year since my graft. I went to see an orthodontist in Sept. The hygenist asked who did my graft? I told her and she stated, well he did an excellent job! She said that she can normally see the scars from the procedure, but she could hardly tell I even had one done! I just wanted to share and thank you and your staff again."
