Alicia’s Story

Alicia Robertson, 61, had been complaining about her missing teeth. Being a child who grew up in a large family, money was scarce, and dental care was the least of their worries. First, Alicia went to a dentist in Blountville and was told that there is nothing they can do for her. She was embarrassed about her teeth, so she tried another dentist’s office. This office did provide treatment; however, the teeth were so uncomfortable that she wasn’t able to chew very well or smile. After this treatment, Alicia was between jobs with no insurance. She had lost all hope until someone told her about Healing Hands Health Center. Through the organization’s dental clinic, Alicia was able to receive a partial denture treatment, at a very low cost.

“Healing Hands changed my life. I never thought that I would feel comfortable smiling again. Talking to people is a part of my job, and I always tried to hide my teeth when speaking to people.”

Alicia’s treatment at Healing Hands Health Center assisted greatly with her social development. Before the treatment, Alicia had been single for 12 years.

Alicia is now in a relationship with someone she loves very much. This treatment made her feel confident, comfortable, and she is no longer afraid to smile.

“Healing Hands has had a great impact on my life. My friends and co-workers gave me the name “Sunshine” because I smile all the time.”
