Jennifer and Jessica Tell Us About Their Dental Health.
Jennifer: I am missing most of my teeth. I think I’m missing about 18 teeth, and the ones that I do have are broken, rotted, or chipped. I have no teeth in the back, and I’ve worn out the front.
Jessica: Most of my teeth are broken or chipped. The teeth that are remaining in front on top are broken and on the bottom are turning black and rotting. I cannot brush regularly without severe pain. I am very self-conscious about my smile and try to hide it in pictures. Most importantly, I am concerned about the effects my teeth have on my overall health!
Jennifer and Jessica Tell Us Why Restoring Their Oral Health Is Important to Them.
Jennifer: Over the last year, the teeth that I do have, have become worse and are causing pain. Also smiling and laughter are a big part of who I am, so I would like to be able to do that without being embarrassed.
Jessica: I have never had a nice smile. I have recently lost weight; however, I still lack self-confidence due to my horrible smile! My wife and I got legally married this year and never had formal pictures taken because of my smile.
Jennifer and Jessica Tell Us Why They Are Good Candidates for the Second Chance Program.
Jennifer: I have had missing and bad teeth for most of my adult life. I am a single mother of three, so I have never been able to afford to fix them. Once my children became adults, I decided to put my girls through college instead of saving money to fix my teeth. Their future is more important to me than a perfect smile. Now it is time for me.
Jessica: I am a great candidate for the Second Chance program because I simply cannot afford dental care, and I would love to be a spokesperson for such a wonderful program!!
