7 out of 10 children in Nevada have immediate dental health problems and need care now!
Have you ever felt a pain that you didn’t understand and could not control? This is the experience felt by many dental patients at Future Smiles.
Last week, we had a young boy, Miguel, who had an infected tooth that caused extreme swelling on the left side of his face. Miguel’s dental situation could be life-threatening, requiring immediate action.Our case manger, Jan spoke with Miguel’s mom to let her know that we had set up an appointment for him. The mother replied:
Future Smiles is a lifesaver.
This morning Miguel’s swelling was so bad that he could not open his left eye!"
Dental emergencies like Miguel’s are the reason Future Smiles began our nonprofit. Future Smiles' mission is to increase access to dental health care for underserved populations. Our vision is to see that no one experiences dental pain and long-term suffering from tooth decay.
Future Smiles works diligently to find the right solution to dental care needs. Often, this means that Future Smiles pays for dental care when children require a referral to a dental specialist for a root canal or oral surgery. YOU can help build a lifetime of smiles by sponsoring a child’s care TODAY!
An increase in child tooth decay is the alarmingly impact of COVID-19!
To better meet Southern Nevada's dental health crisis, we need your help by sponsoring a child’s dental treatment. Giving can be shared by a group of friends, with four friends giving $500 each to fund a child’s unique dental treatment needs. Join Future Smiles in our Building Smiles Campaign to raise $40,000 to support dental care for 20 children and champion dental health ending dental pain and suffering in Southern Nevada!
