Affordable Dentures & Implants – Conroe, TX Delivers the Free Gift of a Smile (and so much more) to Local Patient in Need

“This dentist is a blessing … if we had more like her in this world, we’d see a little more love spreading around … one act of kindness goes a long way.” – Pam Kraft, sister of the patient who received free dental care.

It feels good to smile at someone without placing my hand over my mouth. I just want to feel great about myself and just be able to eat and chew food.” (Photo: Business Wire)

CONROE, Texas--()--For Pam Kraft, seeing her brother, Phillip Bush, smile again does more than warm her heart. “This isn’t just about how someone looks – this is about his life and his health,” says Pam, who helps take care of her brother. “I’ve watched my brother battle a lot of health problems, and I’ve seen him be down about himself. This means so much to us.”

Phillip and his sister, Pam, recently visited Dr. Talya Mintz, at her Affordable Dentures & Implants practice, 3828 West Davis Street, Suite 310 in Conroe, Texas, where Phillip received the gift of free dental care provided by Dr. Mintz. Phillip, who had 8 teeth remaining in his mouth that needed to be extracted for health reasons, walked out the same day with a full set of new teeth (upper and lower dentures), a smile, and more importantly, an opportunity to, as his sister Pam states, “get his confidence and life back.”

“I’m just so appreciative,” explains 62-year-old Phillip, who lives in Porter, Texas. “I wouldn’t have been able to afford this. It feels good to smile at someone without placing my hand over my mouth. I just want to feel great about myself and just be able to eat and chew food.”

Dr. Mintz shares, “As a dentist, I see every day the direct connection between a patient’s oral health and the overall health of their mind and body. I see so many patients who lack confidence and just feeling good about themselves because of the condition of their teeth.”

She adds, “When I met Phillip, I knew I wanted to help him, and as a dentist, it’s such an honor for me to use my skills to help make a difference for someone in our community.”

“I’ve been trying to help my brother get his health together so he can return to work and return to living a normal life,” explains Pam. “We couldn’t believe it when Dr. Mintz said she would like to help with his dental care and do all of this dental work for free. This is a miracle for us. We will never forget this dentist and what she has done for my brother.”

According to the American College of Prosthodontists, 178 million Americans are missing at least one tooth and more than 35 million Americans are missing all their teeth on one or both arches. In a special report, “Oral Health in Texas,” the Texas Health Institute cited that, “Beyond specific diseases and diagnoses, oral health has the potential to severely diminish overall quality of life, with negative psychological and social impacts. About one in five adults experience embarrassment in social interactions due to the appearance of their mouth, which can diminish self-esteem and lead to social withdrawal. Between 7% and 15% of adults say oral problems have limited them from laughing, smiling, or conversing with others in the past year, and one quarter of edentulous adults have avoided close relationships because of fear of rejection.”

“Our dental practice was founded on a mission to deliver high quality and affordable care to patients,” shares Dr. Mintz. “We want to expand patient access to not only the best care but the best care that patients can truly afford. And giving back in our community to those in need is at the heart of what we do.”
