March 6th is National Dentist Day and we would like to say an extra “thank you” to the wonderful local dental professionals that support the residents in the Rescue Mission’s life recovery programs. We are truly blessed to have them donate their time and talents to our “Healthy Smiles Program”. This program allows residents of the Rescue Mission to see a dentist and resolve years of damage to their teeth and gums, relieve pain and improve their smiles. Many of the participants have not smiled publicly for many years, and upon completion of their dental work, have a new outlook about themselves and their future. This program has had a profound impact on these individuals, and we are forever thankful to each one of these awesome dentists!
