Finding Each Other Again
Ron and Jenny do almost everything together. From trips to the grocery store to driving to work each morning, they’re virtually inseparable. Unfortunately for them, it also meant they both shared some of the same dental issues for more than 30 years.
“Really, it’s been a problem all my life, hampering every interaction and generally making life difficult,” said Ron.
“I was afraid of doing anything about my teeth. They were failing, and I had to keep getting them pulled. I wasn’t sure what I was going to do,” said Jenny. “But I never told Ron about it.”
Their dental health was rarely discussed, and Ron and Jenny both suffered in silence, becoming experts at concealing their smiles, even from each other.
“I started to notice we weren’t as close as we used to be. I just didn’t connect it to my teeth,” said Ron.

As Ron’s condition worsened, he searched for solutions. “I had bridges in my mouth, and I knew they weren’t going to work forever. When they failed, I knew I was in for a major change in my life, and I wanted dental implants,” said Ron. “That’s when I found ClearChoice. I was so happy that there was an alternative to dentures.”
When Ron started going through Smile Healthy® process, Jenny confessed some of the same dental problems.
“After watching, I wasn’t afraid, and I wanted to do the same thing,” said Jenny.
“It was impactful because we both decided to do it together. It was the best thing for our marriage.”
“I knew that if we didn’t get our dental health fixed, we were in for a lifetime of other health issues,” said Ron.
After Ron received his full mouth restoration, Jenny underwent treatment and received an upper and lower set of dental implants. The experience of reclaiming their dental health has given them a new outlook on the future.
“It’s truly a life-changing transformation,” said Jenny. “We have the rest of our lives to enjoy our investment.”
“Now we connect. It’s a new beginning for us for a long, healthy life,” said Ron.
