Recognizing and treating compromised dental function
View online | June 1, 2017 | Forward to a Friend

Sometimes you can’t put a price tag on dentistry

Meet John, a US Marine Corps veteran whose biggest battle in life wasn’t fought on the fields in Vietnam; it was his oral health after having cancer. I recently had the opportunity to work on his case with a team of fantastic individuals. Together, we were able to grant John a double-arch All-On-4 procedure from start to finish at no cost to him as a thank-you for his service to our country.

With Memorial Day just behind us and the 4th of July right around the corner, it’s hard not to think about those in the past, present, and future who made and continue to make it possible for us to do what we do.

Have fun this summer, be safe, and stay motivated!

—Stacey L. Simmons, DDS, Editorial Director
