P.G.


PG_1

“P.G. grew up in New Jersey, the son of immigrant parents, and in 1944, barely of age, he enlisted in the army, specifically the paratroopers. P.G. was on only his second combat jump when he was captured by German troops and placed briefly in a concentration camp. By the grace of God, this was April,1945, and in approximately one month this camp was liberated by the allies, and P.G. survived.

He retired in his early eighties, with limited retirement savings. He currently lives in an assisted living home. I can tell you he had very few teeth remaining when the process was begun to get him dentures. P.G. is VERY GRATEFUL to have “teeth” to work with, and, to grin with.

Again, I express the heartfelt thanks of P.G., his family and many friends for your kindness in giving him a somewhat easier time of things in his twilight years. God bless you all.”

C. C.

Culpeper, Virginia

C.C., a veteran, needed dentures to help with glycemic control for management of his diabetes. Once our DDS volunteer dentist had completed full upper and lower dentures for C.C., he could not only eat a healthier diet but was thrilled that his beloved grandchildren were no longer frightened of his appearance and now happy to be near him!
