Melissa’s Denture Story

Wednesday, February 5th, 2014 at 1:30 am

A 31 year old mother of three, just finishing up the process of getting my dentures. I never had perfect teeth, as a kid I wore a retainer to straighten them. It wasn’t until I was pregnant with my second child that they started to take a turn for the worse. I really should have had them taken care of 12 years ago when they first started to deteriorate but I just could not afford it. Over the years I learned to live with my bad teeth until my husband convinced me to take the first step.

A 40 year-old father of 3. I am starting fresh. After working in the “salt mines” I have taken a position as a Mortgage Broker, which involves a lot of sales, and a lot of interacting with people, which I am not used to. I have a construction background and people could care less what I look like because I got stuff done. In the business world, I need to “spiffy up my appearance”.

Scarlett’s Denture Story

Sunday, January 26th, 2014 at 11:26 pm

An Animal Care Technician working in the companion animal healthcare industry. I have a wonderful boyfriend and a little rescue dog.
I remember going to the dentist as a kid; mainly bad experiences (for both my sister and I) as the dentist, though specializing in pediatric dentistry, was not kind, compassionate or attentive to the needs of his patients. At one point during an extraction when my sister (around age 7 at this time) told them she was not completely numb, he screamed at her (audible into the waiting area) and then stabbed her quite hard with the lidocaine needle.

Amy’s Denture Story

Sunday, August 4th, 2013 at 2:13 am

I have had dental problems since childhood. I have memories of numerous trips to the dentist for fillings from a very early age. I definitely developed a fear of going to the dentist. When I became an adult, I wasn’t able to afford regular dental visits, but did my best to keep my teeth clean. Things were fairly OK until just before the birth of my third child at age 24. One of my back teeth cracked and was deemed unsaveable.
