passion

I tidy up all of my patients' folders today. Yes, I love to tidy-up everything, especially my patients' folders. And I'd found some interesting cases since I was treating patients for the first time in 2009. Back in that year, I graduated on-time from dental faculty. Then I took advanced studies overseas. Latest one, I took my advanced TMJ treatment in USA. I will post some pics later, ok ?

Since the first day I went to dental faculty, I had carved hundred or maybe thousand teeth, This art-work is my passion. I carved everywhere. I carved like crazy until today.... perfection is my main concern. This can be sound 'too much'. But yes, I never want to stuck in the middle. I keep pushing myself to my best because my patients deserve the best result.

Some of them are wondering why I charge my patients with such amounts. Especially for dentist-shoppings - a person who loves to visit many dentists and using price as a parameter. Let me explain to you..... First of all, I don't sell goods. You can compare same goods from different shops based on their prices. But in my clinic, you will get my knowledge, my full dedication to treat you the best, my passion, my long-life experience from every different and various cases, and my service to serve you the best. Even let's said for invisalign. I know that it's a brand. Maybe I charge a bit different from others, because I'd treated hundred cases of invisalign and from time to time, I learn, and keep learning to improve myself.
I think that are things you can't definitely compare from others.

I used to be very nice to all of my patients, even I can say that some of them pissed me off. Now, I'm no longer nice to you who don't deserve my loyalty and commitment. I don't mind to say : "Sorry, I don't want to treat you, because you don't deserve my treatment." Some who are not really into it, can think that I'm a bit pricey. But for some who appreciate step-by-step of my treatment will definitely understand that it's worth !

Yes, it's not about money-things. It's about passion. Many times in my daily routine, I accept to treat some patients who appreciate my effort and treatment EVEN they can't afford the price. For me, it's not a big deal. Really, I mean it.

I think, LOVE works in a same way. People deserve my love if they appreciate my loyalty, my commitment, my sacrifice, my effort to always serve them the best. When they're not appreciating, stop there. Don't chase, don't beg, just move on. Call me stubborn and stone-headed, but I will not cry over shits anyway. They just deserve people who are in the same shit-level with them. Am I right ? So, ladies and gentlemen, be wise. Be very-very wise.
Because there will be a phase when the most patient one will fed up...
The most caring one will ignore...
And the most faithful one will leave 
When YOU don't value their patience, care, and faithfulness

Yeah, it's a time bomb. You just wait for the explosion. Because humans have limitation. Not just because someone is very nice, so you can take them for granted for-ever.... It. Is. Not. Like. That. 

Anyway,...

Here are few stuffs I'd found from 'cleaning-folders' project today.
Tradaaa....

Expanded arches !!! This young man used to have 'bunny teeth'. Well, now 'bunny teeth' is very VERY popular in Indonesia. Some of my patients are asking me to get this bunny teeth. Actually, I'm a fan of Hollywood-smile. You know, a very wide bright white smile from ear to ear. But now, I find that this bunny-teeth-smile is very cute. Not all patients suit for this bunny-teeth. You can have a talk with your dentist to consult if bunny-teeth will suit you.


I can say that I'm a profile-freak. I love to see how faces can transform in a good result with no surgery. I also can predict for 'face-transformation and improvement' in pre-treatment. This is I can say, very interesting !!


 When I see ugly smile and crooked teeth, first thing crossed in my mind is : "Geez, why don't you fix that ?" I love to imagine the pre-treatment photos.... how wonderful it will be if I can fix that all. The profile will improve, the smile will improve, and of course they can also improve their confidence with straight teeth. I take this progress photos after 8 months treatment. Extract a mesiodens in upper arch, and for the rest, I had done the craziest expansion I ever done so far. I do no extractions at all in lower arch.  My patient said : "I used to hate food because they stucked everywhere - everytime I eat. Now, no more food impaction." Is that great, eh ?                   

 
One of my favourite thing by doing my job is : you can turn someone pretty into someone even prettier. Of course you don't want to get worse result after treatment - rite ? Having beautiful patients is a big challenge for me. Every patients are unique. That makes me never stop learning. Always. And always.

flamboyant guys

Have you ever met someone, whom makes you awesomely believe in love and says to yourself :

"Yes ! It's him ! He's the one !!"

Someone that.....

Handsome, checked.
Charming, checked.
Romantic, checked.
Neat, checked.
(Seemed) mature, checked.
(Seemed) loyal, checked.

Seemed too good to be true ? DOUBLE CHECKED.

Is he for real ? Think again !
Especially, if he fall in love in 5 minutes with you OR not too long after both of you met FOR THE FIRST TIME, and started to give flowery words (and flowers too!). I name this kind of guy.... flamboyant guys.

These flamboyants can be looked so nice (and sometimes extravagant) to attract your attention. Wait, it's not only for attracting your attention, but other women's attentions as well. He can be deadly romantic because he knows, every nice women always be nice, rite ? And always have big heart to receive their apologizes, rite ?

BAM !!! He shoots you right in your heart. Nice girls love nice words. Yes, and you are a nice girl, very soft-hearted, kind, always serve your best to your man, and oh.... you'll never cheat. Once you give your heart, you'll give your whole heart and topic finished. 
Good catch. You're an easy prey for these flamboyant guys. They will simply tell you : "Nobody love me like you do." or "You're the most wonderful woman ever." or some kinda words like that.

I believe that nobody will be that oh-so-charming in this world. Check again.... Is he....?
1. Not live around you ? A.k.a. in a long distance relationship with you ? 
2. Making you feel not safe without any specific reasons ? And you're just can't explain why you aren't feel safe ? You're just wanna stalk about his past, or reading at his ex's blog or adding his ex in social media to 'find out about him more' ?
3. And everytime you start to not feel safe, he will soothe you with : "Don't worry baby, you're the only one."
4.  He seemed so distant in personality. Seemed like you don't know anything about him, except his ability in physical contact to you.
5. He's so easy making friends, so easy to like someone, so easy to fall in love to you ? Watch out....
6. His words seemed 'too good to be true' about his job, his work, his presentation, and he never share his disabilities. He always has words for everything to cover up something bad....into good.
7. And he can blame others, way tooooooooo easy. As if he's the most perfect man in this world.
8. And he loves to telling you this and that, as if he's paying 100% attentions to your health, work, future, etc.
9. Always 'punish' you when you don't listen to him. A rebel woman doesn't suit him.
10. And in the end, you have to 'admit-that-it's-your-fault'. And making you apologize for his fault and disrespect to you. It's never his fault, it's always others' faults - he said.
11. He can always make you trust him by not showing his dark sides at all.
12. Is he having a lot of fights with his mom ? Or his family ? If yes is the answer, be careful.... If somehow he never listen to the woman who's unconditionally loving him, can he pay respects to you who is "nobody" ??
13. Is he in 'process-of-divorce' and telling you that you're the one ? Pfffft, bullshit
14. Does he have lotsa ideas but always asks someone to 'work' for him ?
15. Does he love to touch you all the time ?  Especially when you are doubting him ?
16. A white guy in Asia, who doesn't have permanent residence or relatives in Asia and in not in holiday purpose. And what purpose do they come here ? Yeah, work hard, play even harder. Once they touch Asia especially for those who never live in Asia before, this place is an ultimate heaven for them. Cute asian girls who adore them and nice to them are everywhere. Who doesn't want ???
17. Someone who thinks that mixed-race are extremely cute.
18. Even you have shown your imperfections, he seemed very understanding and can accept you in every ways. Why ? Wo-o-o--... his imperfections which he hide are more extremes than yours, baby....

It's very easy to fall in love with someone who is too good to be true, someone who appears as a prince charming who can protect and save you, someone who makes you feel proud of. Ask yourself if you're really the only one..... or just one in a million ? 

Things which are easy come, easy go, rite ?

Someone who loves you in real will not give you extravagant words or gifts to show how much he care. He doesn't need words to explain how much he loves, or cares. But your heart will feel comfort and safe, because your own gut will say, "This man is a good man." He will not 'use' your feeling for his own benefits. Because he values his relationship with you. How can you recognize them ?

Easy. His actions will speak louder than his words.

FAMILY - father and mother i love you

Since one by one the AirAsia crash victims had identified, I realize one thing. We can lost people we love so suddenly. Yesterday they're still with us, and now they've gone forever.

Today I visit my parents before I'm going to work. I realize that I was giving them a huge shock few months ago by arguing them and planning to leave my family JUST FOR someone who doesn't even deserve....
Now I feel guilty and terrible. Now I'm fully understand that their love to me is so extraordinary. It's unconditionally....

After the storm had gone, I realize that my parents, my family, are the one who will always stand by me, no matter what. I was nearly cry when I was seeing my mom's smile, when I took her for the first time for having holiday in Singapore, Hongkong, Macau, Bali. And my dad, he's the only man who always call me all the time, to make sure that I'm fine. I feel awful that last time I had lost my mind  and having a huge fight with them. Even I dare to leave them.

When I was visiting a friend who'd lost both of her parents in that unfortunate AirAsia, I couldn't help my tears. Can't imagine if I am in her situation...

Sometimes I always feel that my parents are so selfish by controlling my freedom. Now I realize that they're doing so, because they love me so much. Or maybe too much. Even now I'm living with my own, they always accept me with open arms everytime I visit them.

I feel blessed that my family, they're all loving me even though I had hurt their feeling countless..... Always, guilty come after. Before it's too late, I commit myself that from now on, I will never break their heart anymore. I don't care even someone taught me to "demonstrate" my power in front of my parents, by leaving them. I won't do that.

Whatever happens, I will stay for them.

If you can't respect and love your own parents, if you can't appreciate your own family, you don't deserve any love from others. There's nothing can compare a mother's love. And 1001 men can lie to you, except your father.

Thank God for giving me the best parents and family in this world. How I can ask for more.... I'm beyond blessed....
