What a wonderful, beautiful message from a lady in Iran a month or so ago. She is a dentist who was given a copy of the Farsi translation of one of my books. Here is the message

Hello Dear Dr
I am so glad to see you on Instagram. I got your book in Farsi as a present in a recent oral and maxillofacial radiology congress in Iran.I couldn’t put it down until I finished it in few hours! It was fantastic. I could imagine my patients and myself in similar situations. I laughed a lot and I cried when reading the last page!.Thank you! Thank you for sharing your life story with us and wish you and your family all the best.

I was truly touched, and rather excited, to realise that the book is selling in Iran, though I had Googled and found it on sites there a couple of years ago. I have two copies, but I’ll never read them. They start at the back! The publishers in Iran also changed the name of the book, to ‘Holey Teeth!’ Most of you reading this blog will be unable to read Farsi (especially if you’re Norfolk like me), but if you would like a copy, it’s available on Amazon and from many book shops, where the title is A DENTIST’S STORY!
