What’s New At Niles Smiles Dental
The team spent a day volunteering for Habitat for Humanity in Shelburne, VT.
It was great fun for a great cause!
Patient Bill B. celebrates his new smile! Helping with his care and sharing in the celebration are laboratory technician Peter Barth from Fourth Generation Dental Lab and dental assistant Lisa Demar and dentist Dr. Paul Kenworthy. Bill was referred to Kenworthy Dental through the Donated Dental Services (DDS) program that provides free, comprehensive dental treatment to our country’s most vulnerable people with disabilities or who are elderly or medically fragile. All of those participating in Bill’s care donated their services. Here are his heartfelt comments to everyone involved with his care.
“I wanted to send a Thank You for all that you have done for me. You have changed my whole outlook on life. For all the time and effort you have shown me, I have a new outlook on everything, from eating a simple dinner to being able to smile. I truly appreciate all you have done to help put a smile back on people’s faces. ” Bill B.
Dr Kenworthy recently visited the “Toothbrush” exhibit at the Museum of Everyday Life in Glover Vt. The exhibit was informative and fun! If you are traveling to the NorthEast Kingdom you may want to check it out. The museum has put together a nice summary of the exhibits.
Seven Days newspaper also has a piece on the exhibit. Check it out here. Happy brushing!
