Help my Dad smile again.

Hello,

I am starting this fund raiser in hopes of giving my father all the benefits that come along with a smile. It may be something that you take for granted (my self included), but to be embarrassed to smile is big deal, not counting pain associated with it. Not being able to smile equals to a pretty crappy day, every day.

My name is Nicole, and I come to you to seek assistance with providing dental care for my father. His name is Bryan and has no idea that I'm doing this. In fact, he probably has no idea that organizations like this exist, as he's never used a computer. Despite this fact, he works over 50 hours a week, making minimum wage, and is not offered heath insurance; more specifically, dental insurance. To be honest, me makes about $1,200 a month, but that isn't very much when you take out rent and normal living expenses.

My dad has always had "bad teeth" (cavities and what not, all genetic); but things have gotten awful, and couldn't have come at a worse time. I saved up for him to see my dentist who agreed to give him a discount consultation to see what work he needed done, and it turns out he needs full and partial dentures, on top of over 15 extractions. This equals out to at over $6,000+ at a "discount" at my dentist; but I researched options and the absolute lowest cost option I could find was with a few insurance companies, and with the local dental school. I've reached out to social services as well as several nonprofits, but to no avail.

If you have anything to contribute, it would mean the world, to me, and him.

Thank you for taking the time to consider our request.

Nicole
