Mobile Dental Success Story: Terry

by Katie Carroll | Feb 21, 2014

We are excited to share with you how your gifts are providing urgent dental care to a hardworking community member in urgent need.

This week, our Mobile Dental Van partnered with Outside In – an organization established to help homeless youth and other marginalized people move toward improved health and self-sufficiency. The second patient of the day was 48-year-old Terry. While Terry is blessed with employment he, like many, has lived much of his adult life without medical and dental insurance. Terry was a clear reminder of how difficult it is to get help without insurance. In fact, Terry hadn't visited a dentist in over 20 years, creating significant problems with his oral health. Terry came to the Clinic seeking respite from an incredibly painful, oozing abscess along his molars. With open arms, our volunteer dentist treated Terry for the first time in over two decades!

Said Terry: “This is top of the line care!”

Thank you for helping relieve Terry from excruciating pain!
