A Personal Story: No Preventive Care Possible – Amanda, White River Junction

Amanda is 24 years old, living in White River Junction, Vermont, with a young son who is 19 months old. As a single mom with no job, Amanda just does not have the luxury to focus on her own oral health. Although she has no immediate dental issues, she knows that without appropriate preventative care she is just living on borrowed time, and she worries about what she’s going to do when a problem develops. “I’m just worried about my son right now,” she says. “I literally could not pay anything for my own teeth.” All her resources and all her spare funds go to provide for her son, and Amanda’s own teeth are suffering as a result.
