Serve Day Stories: Dr. Hsieh Gives Someone a Reason to Smile

As part of the Smile Generation family of dental offices, North Rancho Cucamonga Dental Group and Orthodontics and Winery Estate Dental Group, both in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, participated in the second annual Smile Gen Serve Day last August 11th. On SmileGen Serve Day, they provided pro-bono treatment to community members with no access to dental care.

One of the beneficiaries of Smile Gen Serve Day was Joe F, who was referred to the North Rancho Cucamonga office by Goodwill. Joe had been homeless for a few years and currently lives in a tent through a temporary housing program. After undergoing job training through Goodwilil and Secure-Tek’s  program designed to help those in need achieve economic self-sufficiency, Joe was ready to start interviewing for a job. Except that he was a bit wary to speak or smile. Joe shared that he was embarrassed to talk to people because of his teeth.

On Serve Day, Dr. John Hsieh, who practices at Winery Estate Dental Group and Monet Dental Group, Rancho Cucamonga, helped ease Joe’s fears and fixed his smile. Dr. Hsieh was assisted by Kelly Smith and hygienist Haley Harmon.  In Joe’s own words: ” I know my teeth are bad, like really bad. I seldom smiled because of it.”  Thanks to Serve Day and the Smile Generation, Joe confidently went to his job interview.  His parting words:  “Thank you for your great service! Thank you for giving me a reason to smile again.”
