Meet Gena S., Our Second Chance Recipient!
Dr. Ahn is pleased to announce the chosen recipient of our Second Chance program — Gena S., 42, a single mother of two from Newport Beach. Gena was selected from a pool of Orange County applicants to receive a complimentary full-arch restoration procedure. This is the second year that our practice has offered this opportunity to a deserving member of the community.
Gena is missing more than half of her teeth and lives in constant pain as she struggles with her remaining decayed teeth and advanced gum disease. Having escaped an abusive and unhealthy marriage in 2008, she continues to make bold steps to take control of her life. As a devoted mother, her children’s needs have always come first. She has refused to pay for the serious dental treatment she needs so that she can save her money to provide for her children. Gena’s biggest motivation for this life-changing procedure is to make her children proud with a new, confident smile. The Smile Again program will give Gena the smile and boosted confidence she deserves so that she can continue to make positive steps forward in her life. The team at OC Oral Surgery is honored to have the opportunity to help Gena with her transformation!
Dr. Ahn is partnering with Nobel Biocare Dental Implant Company to complete Gena’s personalized treatment. After the procedure, Gena will have a full set of permanent, natural-looking teeth secured by precision-placed dental implants.
