DamiAun&Dr. Gonzales

“DamiAun hadn’t had any dental care for years, because Medicaid didn’t cover it.  He’s able to eat things now that he couldn’t eat before.”

–Tiffany Bolden (not pictured), care provider for DamiAun (center), a Kansas DDS patient

Success Story

Robin Kidney&Dr FredericoThomas

Living in Lawrence, Robin (left), a 30-year employee at the University of Kansas student union, had life-threatening breast cancer that had metastasized to the bone and liver. She desperately needed a clean bill of oral health to qualify for chemotherapy. Oral surgeon Stephen Zeller, DDS, donated an alveoplasty and 13 extractions, and Stephen Chronister, DDS, (right) contributed full upper and partial lower dentures so that Robin could proceed with her cancer treatment. Aries Dental Prosthetics donated the denture fabrications.
