There are times when patients need support that goes beyond straightforward orthodontic treatment, and Asif likes to meet those needs. Whether patients are looking for advice on healthy eating or how to speak in public, wearing braces or extensive dental treatment, he has a team of people he can recommend.
Asif refers patients to:
Annie Morrison has an impressive track record in helping actors, new presenters and starts of screen and stage deal with any speech or voice challenges. Whether it’s developing an accent, learning to project their voice better, hiding a stammer or even – think King’s Speech – developing a plausible stammer – Annie is able to help. We are very fortunate that we can refer our patients to Annie once the braces go on so that she can help minimise any speech challenges. You can read more about her here. Her extensive knowledge will soon be available to all in her book, ‘The Thinking Tongue’ which is due to be published soon.
Farzanah is a qualified Naturopathic Nutritional Therapist. She has written wholesome recipes for LLOC patients when they are first in braces.
