A Personal Story: Good Teeth? – John, Thetford

good_teeth

John is 35, lives in Vermont, and has worked at different times in logging, construction, and farming all his life. He hasn’t been to the dentist in 10 years. He doesn’t have any concerns about his teeth – no pain, no discomfort. Going to the dentist just has not been a priority for him. Now, he finally has dental insurance. But none of the local dentists accepts it. At this point he figures he’ll keep on the way he has until something goes wrong. Maybe he just has “good teeth”. He’s hoping!
