Dr. Paul Koshgerian, Dr. Jonathan Shelton, and the team at The Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Specialists of San Diego developed the Wisdom For Wisdom program as they saw college costs continuing to rise in the region. The program helps by providing two local students with free wisdom teeth extraction procedures. The goal is to alleviate not only the pain that can be caused by wisdom teeth but also ease some of the burden students face when paying for their education and textbooks.
For the 2019 Wisdom For Wisdom program period, the team gifted two complimentary wisdom teeth removal procedures. Baylee V. from El Cajon and Michael T. from San Diego will use their savings to continue their education as they pursue future careers. The program accepted applications from high school and college students from June 17 to June 30, 2019. Each applicant watched a video and completed a brief quiz before writing an short essay about how the procedure would help them as they continue along their educational journey if they were selected. The final recipients were chosen based on the necessity of extraction, educational achievement, and financial need.
