We recently received a letter from a young woman who received care at a mobile dental van thanks to your donations. She wished to remain anonymous, but she wanted to share her gratitude to you for your selfless gifts. Here is the story of "Ann."
Only in her twenties, Ann lost her job and therefore became homeless and without health insurance. For a year and a half, Ann struggled to make ends meet. As her life became more unmanageable, Ann neglected her dental care.
Slowly Ann was able to piece her life back together. She found a job, which she is extremely grateful for. Her job provides her income and a place to live, but unfortunately does not offer health insurance.
For nearly two years, Ann desperately sought care for her teeth. She was in excruciating pain, which made it difficult for her to feel motivated at the job she worked so hard for. Plus, she knew her dental problems were causing bad breath, which also made it embarrassing and uncomfortable to speak with others at her job. At just 31 years old, Ann was facing dentures.
Thanks to you, Ann is no longer in terrible pain and suffering low self esteem! Your donations to MTI's mobile dental program have transformed her life. With successful dental treatment, she now goes to her new job with confidence and enthusiasm to work hard.
In Ann's words: "I am extremely encouraged by the visits I have been blessed with. I am truly grateful and appreciative...I would like to thank everyone involved with making the mobile dental van an available resource for people who have no other options and for making it a reality for second chances. God bless you and thank you from the bottom of my heart and on behalf of those who have also received dental care from the mobile dental van... but may not know how to voice their gratitude."
Thank you for supporting our mobile dental program. You are truly changing lives!
