Local dentists give free dental care to shelter residents

Michelle Klass, a resident of N.E.W. Community Shelter, hasn't been to the dentist in 20 years. Despite her history of bad dentists, the aides at Meadowbrook Smiles were gentle and took good care of her, she said.

HOWARD – Eric Talbot has averted smiling in entrance of other people today considering the fact that he was 15.

He’d duck and dodge images or disguise behind another person when his buddies attained for cameras. If he couldn’t prevent the spectacle, he’d stand uncomfortably with his lips pursed. He didn’t want anybody to see his teeth.

“I was constantly self-mindful about my smile mainly because my enamel ended up just, very well, hideous,” Talbot said. “I want to be able to smile once more.”

Talbot has a whole lot to smile about. Because coming to Inexperienced Bay a 12 months ago and struggling with dependancy and homelessness, he’s been sober for 120 times, acquired a voucher for housing and will soon be able to go out of the N.E.W. Community Shelter, where he is been residing for the past 2½ months.
