Conversations Week 4, January
Me: So that’s how you work the Rapid Maxillary Expander appliance
Patient Dad: Fair enough. And how often do I have to do that?
Me: One turn every day, and I’ll check it again in 2 weeks
PD: But how’s that going to work?
Me: Well just turn it once a day, last thing at night is best.
PD: But he’s in boarding school.
Patient: Here, I’ll do it myself.
Me: Err, ok, you can have a go, but it can be diffic- oh. Fair play. You’re only the third person I’ve seen be able to do that for themselves.
