It’s hard to live up to the nickname “Smiley” when you’re not confident about your smile. That’s exactly the situation volunteer Fireman and EMT, Larry Kleiman was in when he showed up for a dental consult at the office of Dr. Michael Tischler last year.
Kleiman, a veteran who did two tours in Vietnam, arrived at Dr. Tischler’s office with almost none of his natural teeth left. After hearing about his lifelong service and getting to know him personally, Dr. Tischler decided that he needed to help.
At his next appointment, Kleiman, who knew he couldn’t afford the procedure he needed on his fixed income, was informed that he would be getting a new set of teeth, free of charge, as recognition of his years of service and helping others.
“Everything about him was just the kind of person that you wanna help,” Tischler said.
The $60,000 “Teeth Tomorrow” procedure, which is a cutting-edge system, gave Kleiman his teeth and his confidence back after years of mental and physical discomfort. His new smile is infectious and reminds us all that good deeds always come back around in one way or another!
