I was a grocery checker for ten years, and the talk of the town, everyone complimented me on a daily basis, saying I was the happiest and kindest person they ever seen, always greeting my customers with a great big smile, they said I had a beautiful smile.

But that all changed when I was a victim of domestic violence, my ex-husband punched me in my mouth and I felt my teeth literally crumble in my mouth, I was so afraid to spit but I had to because I didn’t want to choke on my teeth or all the blood in my mouth, I was so afraid to look in mirror, but once I did, I broke down and cried.

Smile no more, my life went downhill after that, stopped working, became very depressed, my dream would be to have my teeth back and smile once again….to come back to life…..
