Fifth Grader Has Something To Smile About
Date:9/27/2013

North Canton, Ohio (PRWEB) September 27, 2013

Logan Palmer had no dentist but his mother knew that he had dental problems that needed immediate attention. She also knew she couldn’t afford to get help but along came Smile for a Lifetime.

On the application she wrote, “Logan sometimes struggles making friends and now that his permanent teeth are coming in so poorly, it is making his social life even harder”. Logan’s application came along with two letters of reference. A teacher at Minerva Elementary school stated that: “Logan often gets teased because of his teeth and the way he talks by the other kids.

He indicated that Logan was a good student with good grades and with dental and orthodontic help; he would be “destined for a great future”.

Logan was chosen as a finalist for the Smile for a Lifetime program but the severity of the 5th graders problem was not known until he was examined by Dr. Bernard as a S4L candidate. A panoramic x-ray showed 6 impacted extra or “supernumerary” teeth and one impacted permanent central incisor! Now surgical help was needed along with dental and orthodontic help. Fortunately, Dr. Bernard and Eimer’s chapter of S4L has had several dentists volunteer their services for their scholarship candidates. Dr. Bernard, Dr. John Scott, a general dent
