Drs. Russell Lieblick and Brandon Rehrer of Beacon Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons announced Judy, 51, of Castle Rock as the recipient of their Second Chance program. Judy was selected out of over 600 applicants to receive the life-changing procedure: a free smile makeover. This is the practice’s third year offering the Second Chance program, which allows residents in the community to submit applications to the oral surgeons that describe their poor oral health and the daily challenges they face due to their missing and deteriorating teeth for the chance to receive a full-arch restoration treatment, a $50,000 procedure, completely free of charge.
Growing up, Judy’s family did not have enough money to afford dental insurance and her mother also had teeth that were broken and decayed, which left her with an impossible chance for a healthy smile. With only six teeth remaining, Judy was held back due to her critical dental health and felt that she was missing out on big opportunities. Judy now has a better opportunity to advance her career since she had always been nervous that people would only focus on her teeth instead of her skills. Judy’s daughter will be graduating next year from high school, and her wish is to be able to smile in photos with her daughter during this monumental moment. When asked how the smile makeover will change her life, she said, “My daughter deserves her mother to be 100% for her, and if I received this procedure, I hope I can feel whole again for myself and my family.”
“The Second Chance program is much more than providing a patient with a brand-new smile,” Dr. Russell Lieblick said. “We hope this life-changing procedure will be a fresh start for Judy and hope this will give her the courage and confidence to advance in her career.”
Beacon Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons will be collaborating with Dr. Albert Canepa from Canepa Dental, Cosmetic Dental Specialties, and Zimmer Biomet to give Judy the flawless smile she deserves.
