We recently had the pleasure of learning about Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Charleston’s Save-A-Smile Program that provides assistance to clients in need of full dentures. Their services also include a comprehensive dental wellness workshop to provide education on care and maintenance of dentures. All dentures are provided on a sliding scale fee and cost approximately $300. To date, around 1,000 clients have received full dentures (before and after photos to the left).
Good oral health may mean the ability to carry out the basic physical and social functions that we normally take for granted. Far too many individuals lack access to consistent dental care. The lack of preventative and restorative care at critical points leads many to lose most or all of their natural teeth. Because the lack of attractive, functional teeth can inhibit the ability to function socially, economically, and physically, Catholic Charities provides clients with dentures. You can give the “Gift of A Smile” by donating online (here, make sure to reference Save-a-Smile under the program/ministry) or by mail to:
Catholic Charities Piedmont

on your check, direct funds to Save-a-Smile Greenville
Our goal is to raise money toward 5 full denture sets in the amount of $1,500. Every donation helps!
