A Smile to Remember – Rick Harwood

Every year, I look forward to attending the Yankee Dental Congress in Boston. It’s a treasure trove of knowledge and innovation, and I always make it a point to sign up for courses by Dr. Gordan Christensen. His insights into the latest dental products and techniques have profoundly shaped my practice.

One year, Dr. Christensen introduced us to an incredible organization called Donated Dental Services (DDS). He explained the concept behind DDS—providing free, comprehensive dental treatment to those who are disabled, elderly, or medically fragile. This resonated deeply with me. Although I wasn’t certain if Dr. Christensen founded DDS, his passionate endorsement of the program was enough to spark my interest.

Over time, DDS evolved into what is now known as the Dental Lifeline Network. Through this remarkable organization, I had the pleasure of meeting Richard Harwood. Richard’s story was one of resilience and hope. He had been struggling with dental issues for years, and his smile was a shadow of its potential. The Dental Lifeline Network connected us, and I am so glad they did.

Richard quickly became more than just a patient; he became a friend. His positivity and gratitude were contagious, and it was an honor to work on restoring his smile. Our office collaborated to provide Richard with the dental care he needed, and the transformation was incredible.

Today, Richard’s new smile is a testament to the power of compassion and community. His confidence has soared, and he wears his smile proudly.
