Patient impact: I was able to help restore rampant caries on a 19 year old teen who had to fly for his military dental exam the following day. I worked only on him the whole afternoon. I finished an all-complete mouth restoration including cleaning. He called me after three days to let me know he passed his dental checkup. He came to visit after 5 months with a bouquet of flowers in his military uniform.
