Against the Odds

“Losing my front teeth at 14 years old was the bleakest period of my life. Being robbed of my smile at an age where you’re extremely conscious of your appearance was a hard blow. Dr Sadiq’s complex treatment-plan was not only astonishing but proved to be life-changing. He truly worked against the odds to get me my smile and confidence.”  Yusuf, 18yrs, pictured with his orthodontist Dr Sadiq from Orchard Orthodontics in Croydon.


Against the Odds is an opportunity for orthodontic patients to share how their treatment has had a significant impact on their lives and to give recognition to their orthodontist. The award goes to the best account of treatment achieved against the odds any time within the preceding two years.
