Meet Harry

Harry visited our office for the first time about a year ago. Until he walked into our office, Harry had not seen a dentist in nearly 40 years! He was a recent retiree who, until that point, did not feel like he could afford the dental care he needed. When he finally had access to his pension, he decided it was time to take action. Harry was tired of having an unhealthy, decayed, and disfigured smile. It was time to regain what he had lost.

Getting The Help He Needed

When it was time to make a change, Harry called up a dear friend who he knew would have a great recommendation for a dental office.

[Ring, ring, ring]


“Hey, Bill, it’s Harry. How’s it going?” Harry asked.

Bill replied, “I’m great. How are you?”

“Well, I hope to be doing better soon. I want to ask you about something.” Harry told Bill about his situation and told him he was ready to get the smile he knew he deserved. Bill indeed had the perfect suggestion for him.

“Lapalco Family Dental. That’s where my wife and I go. We’ve been seeing Dr. Landry for almost 20 years now. They take great care of us, and I know they can help you get what you need.”

When Harry ended his conversation with Bill, he picked up the phone and dialed up our office and told us about his situation. We were able to schedule him into see our team that very week. Harry was on the road to achieve the smile he deserved!

Considering His Options

When Harry arrived at our office, he learned that his situation was even more extensive than he thought. After a series of X-rays and examinations, we determined that all of his remaining teeth would need to be extracted. We then wanted to replace them in some way. But that was decision for Harry to make. He had two main options: removable dentures or dental implants.

Undergoing Treatment

Because Harry was a thrifty man and wasn’t too keen on the idea of undergoing surgery, he opted for the dentures. We were able to schedule his extraction appointment and get him in for the procedure within a few weeks. He went home the very same day with a beautiful new set of dentures. Right away Harry loved the way his new smile looked, but getting used to using them to eat was more difficult.

Stay Tuned For Part Two

In fact, Harry never really got the hang of his dentures. One day, he realized that enough was enough. He needed a more secure solution. And he knew just who to call! Stay tuned to learn more about Harry’s journey and how he got the more secure smile he knew he needed.
