Mobile Dental Success Story: Dan

by Katie Carroll | Feb 18, 2014

For five years, Dan, who is involved in the local community helping alcoholics & drug abusers, has had one wish – “I want to be comfortable smiling in pictures again."

After a basketball accident that cracked his front tooth, Dan had been struggling daily with low self-esteem and severe pain every time he drank cold water and ate certain foods. The pain often woke him up at night.

During a mobile dental clinic, a volunteer dentist filled the crack and relieved the pain - and Dan's hopes came true.

Thank you, donors & volunteers, for giving Dan his smile & self-confidence! You can help your low-income neighbors by donating to our Mobile Dental Program.
