In Your Corner Update: OK woman gets Hollywood smile
OKLA. CITY – Carol Sharp can’t stop flashing her new Hollywood smile.
Dr. Jay Peck and non-profit, D-DENT, foot the bill for a new, full set of implants for Carol.
“This is a complete reconstruction,” dentist Jay Peck said. “We replaced all of her teeth, top and bottom.”
You’ll remember a nasty fall knocked out Carol’s teeth.
She hadn’t smiled in months and was embarrassed to take pictures.
Carol purchased a Groupon for what she thought included a full set of implants.
Turns out, the Groupon, which cost about $2400, only covered one implant, not the whole set.
We eventually convinced Groupon to give Carol a full, cash refund.
“I know when you smile it makes you feel happier and so I know she’s happier for having this done and I’m happier I can do this for people,” Dr. Peck said.
There’s something else worth celebrating.
Carol’s spent the past three decades hosting foreign exchange students at her home.
She nearly called it quits because of her bad teeth, but now she has new implants, more confidence and an even greater desire to be a maker of change.
