You don’t get to meet real life heroes every day but hundreds of patients are thrilled to know Dr. Milan Khakhria and are truly grateful for his generous spirit! Following the death of Dr. James Yang, his orthodontic patients had nowhere to go and no one to help them. No one, that is, until Dr. Khakhria stepped forward and offered to work with all of Dr. Yang’s patients to complete their treatment. This is unheard of given the competitive nature of orthodontic care and because many of Dr. Yang’s patients had already paid Dr. Yang in full for two years of orthodontic treatment. The kindness, generosity, selflessness and honor Dr. Khakhria demonstrated by taking care of his peer’s patients cannot be overstated and as someone who has covered the orthodontic profession for over a decade I can tell you this selfless act is unprecedented. Given all the bad news inundating our daily lives it’s awesome to focus on someone who put his principles and patients above all else to do the right thing. Here’s to you Dr. Khakhria for demonstrating what it is to be a decent human being and acting as a role model for the rest of us.
