Recently, our O’Fallon dental office participated with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry’s charity Give Back a Smile. This program partners with dentists throughout the United States to restore the smiles of domestic violence survivors who have experienced trauma to the mouth. With the help of O’Fallon periodontist Dr. Andy Weber we were able to restore two missing teeth which had been knocked out during an instance of domestic abuse.
The patient whose smile was restored was thrilled with the results and gave me a hug afterwards. She is currently seeking employment and is able to enter interviews more confidently as a result of her new smile.
