Dental Van Success Stories: People You've Helped

by User Not Found | Jun 23, 2014

Dental care is one of the top unmet health care needs for low-income adults in Washington and Oregon. Because of your donations, we are able to provide dental services for grateful community residents in need. Every day we hear from our patients about the meaningful, even life-changing, impact receiving dental care has on their lives:

"Your people for the dental van…are real personable and make you feel so comfortable. This means so much for me because for at least 10 years I have not seen a dentist. I have such bad teeth that with this dental van I will have the self-confidence to look for a job…with the bad teeth I’m so self-conscious of myself and do not want to interact with people. Thank you so much for everything." -Robert

"I was in need of significant dental care for about two years prior to being treated by the mobile dental van; I suffered through debilitating pain and costly emergency room visits. My overall health was impacted because I began neglecting my oral hygiene due to pain. I cannot express the level of gratitude I feel." -Patient at a men’s shelter

"Had partial root canal then lost insurance when I became disabled and had heart attack. I can’t afford to fix my teeth and am afraid I will lose them. Thank you so much for this dental van." -Sara

Thank you for donating to our mobile dental vans!
