A Second Chance At a New Smile

Erlinda Vargas is the first recipient of a Second Chance program to help people with extensive tooth loss and other oral health issues but who are unable to afford proper treatment. Vargas suffered through domestic abuse in her family as a child and did not receive proper dental care, which led to her oral health issues.

Erlinda was selected out of 400 applicants to receive an implant supported denture – essentially new permanent teeth – free of charge from the Second Chance program. The Second Chance program, started by Fresno Oral Maxillofacial Surgery and Dental Implant Center, helps community members with oral health issues that are unable to cover the costs of the work.

Erlinda has three children, ages 2, 4 and 9 and works at the day care facility at St. Agnes Medical center in Fresno. A couple years ago, she had only 15 of her 28 teeth, and seven of the ones she had were severely decayed, Namdarian said. “I’m just so happy,” Erlinda said of her new smile. “I feel like a different person.”

Dr. Sam Namdarian of Fresno Smile Makeovers teamed up with the Fresno Oral Surgery center and selected implant and prosthesis companies that provided two oral surgeries and products to help bring back a smile for Erlinda. Dr. Namdarian is a top rated cosmetic dentist and Invisalign provider in Fresno, California and remains active in his community.

It is truly an honor for Fresno Smile Makeovers to be a part of such a life changing event for such a hardworking, deserving person. Erlinda is able to confidently smile, talk, and chew her food now that she has received the final restoration to her implant supported denture. We are all very happy for you Erlinda, and we hope you enjoy your new smile!

Restoring a Young Girl’s Smile

This is my 16 year old patient who had braces for 8 years and her orthodontist never managed to create contact between her back teeth. The only contact that existed was between her front teeth, which caused it to be unstable and detrimental for her teeth and jaws. In other words, she never had any bite on any of her back teeth. With accurate measurement and a great dental laboratory, @frontierdentallab, I was able to close her bite with some crowns on her back teeth. As you can see in the bottom pictures we got a very amazingly stable result!

NOTICE OF TEMPORARY CLOSURE

Announcement from Fresno Smile Makeovers:

In light of the evolving pandemic and out of an abundance of caution, our office will be closed until Monday, April 13. We believe that this closure will allow us to more effectively evaluate this dynamic situation and assist in following the CDC’s guidance on social separation. If you have an appointment with us during this time, our office will be in touch to help reschedule your appointment.

 

As always, we will be available for emergency care if it were to arise during this time. There will be a dentist on call in the event of a dental emergency. Should you require this emergency care, please call our office as you normally would by phone or text as messages will be checked at 8:00 AM each day that our office is closed. If you are experiencing a life-threatening medical emergency or you can not wait until the next business day, please refer to your nearest emergency room, or urgent care facility.

 

A dental emergency includes: teeth that have been knocked out (evulsed), forced out of position (extruded), or broken (fractured), injuries to soft tissue of mouth, swelling, or infection.

 

We did not make this decision lightly. A great deal of care, research and planning guided our decision. We will continue to evaluate the situation as it evolves and determine on a weekly basis when it is appropriate for us to return to our normal business hours. Again, please understand that we are making this decision with the health and well-being of our patients, our families, our team and our community in mind. Please refer to our website for the most up to date information: https://fresnosmilemakeovers.com

 

During this time of uncertainty, we want to express our concerns about your wellbeing and that of your families and friends. Thank you for being a valued patient.

 

Sincerely,

 

Dr. Sam Namdarian and Staff
