Angelica is a patient of Dr. Carlos Nurko's who recently finished her treatment. She is thrilled to look in the mirror and smile with confidence. She wrote a letter to Dr. Nurko and his staff explaining her joy. North Texas Orthodontic Associates would like to share this recent letter and story with all of our readers. Dr. Nurko found out about Angelica and the need for her treatment thought Give a Kids a Smile and was happy to help. Thank you to Angelica for the lovely letter, and the photo.
Give Kids a Smile (GKAS) is an annual event created by the American Dental Association, held each year in conjunction with the national Children's Dental Health Month. The objectives of GKAS are to enhance the oral health of large number of needy children and to highlight for policy makers the ongoing challenges that low-income families face in finding dental care.
The North Texas Give Kids a Smile Program
For the last six years the North Texas Dental Society (NTDS) has administered and overseen the GKAS program in Collin and Denton counties. In 2011 when Dr. Nurko was co-chairing the program a pilot orthodontic project was created and 6 kids were selected to be treated. Dr. Nurko treated 3 of the 6 cases through probono (no charge). Dr. Nurko was awarded a recognition in 2011 by the North Texas Dental Society for excellence in leadership in his community. The Orthodontic program has since continued with more Orthodontists treating patients. We are so happy to see how this program and others just like it has changed lives and smiles forever. We hope to continue to post more successful stories just like Angelica's in the future.
Angelica's letter reads:
Dear North Texas Orthodontic Associates,
Thank you so much for all the hard work that you did on my teeth. It has been a great change to my life. All this makes me so happy! Thank you to all the Nurses that help me in every way here. And to Doctor Nurko, that he always pushing me better for the good. I really appreciate this smile you all did for me. Now, I can smile and feel free to smile. Thank you Doctor Carlos Nurko, thank you Nurses, and thank you to the program :)
