Meet Latausa E., Our Second Chance Recipient!
Drs. Bryan and Goodson are excited to announce that Latausa E., 37, of Edmond, was selected out of 540 local applicants to receive a life-changing new smile through our Second Chance program. As our chosen recipient, Latausa will be receiving a complimentary full-arch restoration procedure to replace her multiple missing, broken, and decayed teeth. This is the second year that our practice has had the opportunity to offer this transformative treatment to a member of our community.
Latausa is constantly judged due to the state of her teeth, and she has suffered from painful abscesses for the last 10 years. Three years ago, she spent her entire tax return to remove all of her broken teeth, which left her with only 13 remaining teeth that are now beginning to crumble. She works in customer service and is embarrassed to speak or smile, so she feels her career has been stifled. When asked how a new smile would change her life, Latausa said, “Smiling, to me, is an invitation to happiness, and it draws people in. I always smile with my mouth closed, and it has been so long since I have genuinely smiled. This opportunity would help me regain my confidence, and I would be able to make others happy with my smile too.” The treatment Latausa is receiving through the Second Chance program will help to boost her confidence so that she can continue on the path of success in her career and in her life. The entire team at Oral Surgery Specialists of Oklahoma is honored to have the opportunity to help Latausa smile again!
Drs. Bryan and Goodson are partnering with restorative dentist Dr. Michael Fling to complete Latausa’s custom full-arch restoration treatment. After the procedure, she will have a full set of permanent, natural-looking teeth secured by precision-placed dental implants.
