Anaheim, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/27/2014 -- Recently Dr. Chuck Le of 7 Day Dental started treating a special patient who needed a helping hand. Chris has been unemployed for a long time and was staying in a shelter run by a nonprofit that offers some social services. Chris has a history of substance abuse and depression, so, it’s not surprising that his oral health has been poor. He knew he needed to fix his teeth in order to get a job, but he could not afford the dental work. He wrote to 20 dentists asking for help. Dr. Le was the only one who responded.
Dr. Le called Chris and invited him to come in to 7 Day Dental. Chris had many teeth missing and needed a lot of work that he could not afford. However, it turned out that he had MediCal that would pay part of the cost of his treatment. Dr. Le decided to do the cosmetic reconstruction that Chris needs and any of the normal fees not covered by MediCal will be waved. Dr. Le thinks that Chris is trying hard to improve his circumstances and simply needs a helping hand from someone who cares. Dr. Le feels blessed to have the skill to offer this kind of service to Chris.
Chris was so excited on the day of his first treatment that he made a video testimonial praising Dr. Le and the staff at 7 Day Dental. He said he looks forward to being able to help others with a feeling of confidence. He also looks forward to spending time with his daughter and her friends without feeling ashamed of his teeth.
Dr. Le has always been interested in giving back to the community and helping those less fortunate. In recent years he worked with the Orange County Vietnamese American Lions Club and others to offer “Dentist Pulling from the Heart.” Dr. Le and other staff from 7 Day Dental offered free tooth extractions and fillings to 300 people in a single day.
Dr. Le donates funds or dental supplies following catastrophes such as the Fukushima nuclear disaster, the earthquake in Haiti and typhoon damage in the Philippines. And he tries to raise awareness and funds among our patients by posting information about these disasters on the 7 Day Dental website. Following the disaster in the Philippines, 7 Day Dental sent emails to patients offering to match any donations for humanitarian relief.
