Meet Dana D., Our Smile Again Recipient!
Drs. Clark, Young, and Lewallen are excited to announce our first annual Smile Again recipient Dana D., 35, of Christiana. Dana was selected out of 300 local applicants to receive a life-changing new smile through our Smile Again program. As our chosen recipient, Dana will be receiving a complimentary full-arch restoration procedure to replace her multiple missing, broken, and decayed teeth. This is the second year that our practice has had the opportunity to offer this transformative treatment to a member of our community.
Dana is embarrassed by the state of her teeth and has trouble eating due to the pain. She suffers from constant tooth infections and severe facial swelling. The once confident woman has avoided going out in public due to feelings of shame. When asked how a new smile would change her life, Dana said, “I would love to be able to smile and interact in public without feeling ashamed or worried about how ugly my teeth make me feel.” The treatment Dana is receiving through the Smile Again program will help to boost her confidence so that she can regain her confidence and dignity. The entire team at Southern Oral & Facial Surgery is honored to have the opportunity to help Dana smile again!
Drs. Daniel Clark, Sean Young, and Brad Lewallen are partnering with restorative dentist Dr. Ryan Torti to complete Dana’s custom full-arch restoration treatment. After the procedure, she will have a full set of permanent, natural-looking teeth secured by precision-placed dental implants.
About the Smile Again Program
Our Smile Again program is designed to help a deserving person from the Franklin and Thompson’s Station, TN, surrounding communities regain their smile, oral function, and oral health. The program was open to local community members who suffer from severe oral health issues but cannot afford the treatment to correct them. Following the close of the application period, we performed thorough oral examinations to determine our finalist. Dana will have a series of appointments at our practice to transform her smile.
