Grants Guys is currently working with the Wildflower Clinic to help sponsor 1 person every quarter with denture funds. I was happy to talk with Caroline Volk who is the Wildflower Outreach Nurse/Healthy Lifestyles Coordinator. Caroline reached out to me to express how some of their patients were in need of funds for dentures. The Wildflower is run by volunteers and offers 100% free dental work to their patients. Caroline was able to find a local Dr. who was willing to construct quality dentures at the amazing price of $395 for a full set.
Grants Guys First Sponsor Beverley
Grants Guys is happy to share the story of our first sponsor Beverley. She has new dentures and is looking forward to a life with increased confidence and hence, opportunity! Last week she was told about our offer to help and she was very grateful. When Caroline saw her last week she wrote “my life has been a whirlwind for a while. I approached the homeless shelter last year when I had to leave where I was staying which took a toll on me as I was looking after a family member at the time. So here I am, down on my feet and my luck and the Wildflower Clinic has been a God send for me. I am a Certified Nurse Assistant and have a part time job, but for years I have had a bad tooth decay problem and my teeth keep falling out. Getting new teeth will make me overjoyed and give me the confidence to go back to school and get more qualifications in nursing and earn enough money to get myself back on my feet and out of the homeless shelter. I am so embarrassed about my teeth it would mean so much to get new teeth”.
Today when Caroline saw her she had a big smile on her face! She is starting a second job today and is looking into going back to school in the new year. She is also wanting to give back to the Wildflower Clinic and we are signing her up to volunteer with taking blood pressures and helping out with our ongoing outreach program when she can.
What You May Want To Know
As you may already know finding free help can be very challenging. Many of the people who contact me each day could very easily rack up a 5 figure dental bill. I have been doing this for a while now and hopefully can share with you the necessary steps you are going to need to take to have your dental nightmare come to an end.
Hello, my name is Carl Evangelista and I am part of the Grants Guys Team. I have been assigned directly to this cosmetic dental work funding program and have a personal connection to this topic. In 2010 my dad had a seizure luckily he has made a full recovery. He was prescribed a medication that he has to take for the rest of his life this caused him to lose his teeth. The bill for his cosmetic dental work was about $5,000 and for him raising the funds was challenging. He was not at retirement age and if he had not had the work done he would have lost his job due to his appearance.
Ok, let me start by saying your dental work is going to come from a state or city level. Not from the government. Just like the story about Beverly the support is local. There are many programs at your state and city level that offer free dental work. If you are located in a big city then most likely that’s where you will want to look. So before you start looking into denture you are going to need to have all of your cosmetic dental work taken care of first.
One of the best places I can offer for you to look first is the Mission of Mercy Events. It is held in over 30 states and I have already put together the full list for you. Follow this link to see if your state is on the list http://grantsguys.com/free-dental-clinics/ .
