IT’S not everyday that somebody turns 100 years old – and it’s even more rare for them to celebrate at the dentist.

Ivy Ward became a centenarian on Wednesday, December 11. She was gifted a brand new set of bespoke dentures by Lee Butler, a professional at Solutions Dental in Winchester.

Lee said that Ivy was a regular visitor over the last nine years, and was very keen to reward her “unwavering loyalty”.

He added: “Ivy is such a lovely lady with a beautiful smile, she deserved to have new dentures.

“Ivy never missed an appointment in nine years, and her dentures were the perfect way of saying thank you whilst showing how important regular checks are.”
