Helping a Veteran Smile Again

Everyone deserves to smile, especially our veterans. Drs. Koshgerian and Shelton are proud to launch their Smiles For Veterans program, which provides the opportunity for one veteran living in the San Diego area to receive a full-arch restoration procedure for free. This year’s deserving recipient is Leonard, 71, from Chula Vista.

Leonard is a US Army veteran who came to the United States after being born in the Philippines. His dental issues started when he was about 10 years old after another kid hit his head so hard that his teeth became loose. Now, missing nearly all of his teeth, Leonard rarely feels like smiling and is very aware of what other people see. In his application, Leonard wrote that he wants this smile makeover so that he can improve his self-confidence and chew healthy foods without difficulty.

We look forward to improving Leonard’s oral health and confidence.
