Dr. Paulino Castellon put it best when he said:
Dallas Prosthodontics has been associated with Hopeful Smiles™ for over four years. There is no greater feeling than to be in a position to give someone their life back through their smile. My experience with Hopeful Smiles’™ patients has been more than rewarding. The impact we are able to make on the patient’s life is as gratifying to us as it is to them. We look forward to each and every case.
Hopeful Smiles™ is a unique partnership with local dental professionals to assist women who are in critical need of restorative dental care. The program is dedicated to helping women who have gone through tough times regain their dignity, job interviewing skills, and a smile that will enable them to be considered for more than entry level work.
- Have impaired smiles or severely, damaged anterior teeth that limit their employability or health.
- Be committed to their personal growth and sobriety, if addiction has been an issue in their past.
- Actively seeking or maintaining employment or obtaining continued education.
Although over 55 dentists in the DFW area participate in the program, more dentists are needed. Dentists provide their time and talents and the Hopeful Smiles program provides funds for the materials.
