An Opportunity to Smile Again
Canyon Oral & Facial Surgery Dental Implant Experts is proud to announce its 2022 Smile Again recipient. This life-changing program provides a deserving recipient from the Las Vegas area with a complete smile makeover free of charge.
Marlies, 35, is a mom and a food server living in Las Vegas. A few years ago, Marlies was diagnosed with vitamin C deficiency, also known as scurvy. By the time the diagnosis was confirmed, she had been through over a year of doctor visits and tests, all while her teeth were cracking and breaking. This led her to believe her only option was to get dentures in her 30s. Marlies wrote that she’s embarrassed by her smile, and that she constantly puts her hand in front of her mouth to hide it from others when speaking, even with dentures. Beyond her own health, her daughter was born full term, but not breathing. She received CPR immediately after birth and was diagnosed with cerebral palsy. Her daughter needed oxygen for months and spent 14 months in physical therapy. Now, at 2 years old, she’s doing more than was ever expected, uses orthopedic braces for walking, and is an inspiration every single day. Marlies finished her application by writing that she “LOVED to smile” and that “[loving] [her] smile again would mean everything.”
