There are many charities and other dental organizations that are helping people get free false teeth.
However, many people may not know that a newspaper also gives people a chance to get help.
By printing a story which highlights the personal circumstances of a person in need of free dental care, donations can be made.
For instance, the Charleston Daily Mail featured a story recently in their ‘Neediest Cases Appeal’ section.
A 31 year old mother of two was seeking to improve the life of her family by getting a job. However, missing teeth were hampering her efforts, as the way she felt about her visual appearance was affecting her confidence. Getting new teeth boosts confidence for many people.
She would like to have a bottom plate of dentures put in to make her smile complete and ready to face the world and the job market.
The appeal to cover the cost of lower dentures may not seem much to some, but raising the required sum of just over three hundred dollars could not only change this woman’s life but also change the lives of her children.
The number of people who cannot afford dental care appears to be growing, but thanks to the reporting of such cases as this, and the generosity of others, many people can get the dental treatment that they need.
