“I feel like it was the best treatment I could have gotten and it has given me a whole lot of self-esteem that I didn’t have. I can live a life and not feel like I have to hide all the time. I am really thankful.”
–Cindy, a DDS patient with Dr. Jonathan Berns (MI)

Success Story

Alberta Abeyta and Dr

Alberta (left), age 52, was forced to quit working after becoming disabled following a car accident. She experiences a great deal of orthopedic pain and has osteoarthrosis. Living on Social Security disability payments, Alberta could not afford dental care, and with few remaining teeth, she could not chew her food effectively. Kit Haddow, DDS, volunteered to treat Alberta, providing her with full upper and lower dentures, with fabrications donated by Diamond Dental Lab. (CO)
