Charlotte, NC (January 15, 2016) – Dr. Amir Marashi, MD, DDS of Greater Charlotte Oral & Facial Surgery are offering a resident of the greater Charlotte area an opportunity to get back their smile. One deserving recipient will receive the full-arch restoration method to repair their teeth with dental implants to create a new set of fully functional, natural-looking teeth, at no cost.

“The struggle that some individuals in our community have been faced with throughout their lives is astonishing, and extremely unfortunate,” said Dr. Marashi. “We want to provide hope to our community and help our members overcome their daily battles due to their poor oral health. We feel blessed to be able to provide such an amazing opportunity and are excited to change someone’s life, starting with something as simple, yet vital, as a smile.”

Dr. Marashi is partnering with Dr. R. Bruce Miller of Charlotte Prosthodontics, to provide the full-arch restoration to the recipient. This is a revolutionary solution for patients who are missing teeth, are in the process of losing teeth, or have been told they will need dentures. The procedure will allow the recipient to experience the look, feel, and strength of natural teeth, while also enjoying their favorite foods again. This is a secure and lasting solution for those who suffer from multiple missing teeth.

Complications such as cardiovascular disease, respiratory infections, and even diabetic complications are just some of the consequences that may result from poor oral health. Many dental implant candidates have experienced tragic physical or emotional struggles due to their oral health condition and would be deserving of this gift. The decision to pick one candidate to receive this complimentary treatment is sure to be difficult.

In addition to restoring oral function, an enhanced self-esteem, and a natural smile, the Second Chance program has a goal to improve the final recipient’s overall quality of life by addressing other specific needs of the patient, such as a physical fitness, nutrition, career counseling, and therapy. Community members interested in becoming a partner in the program should contact Greater Charlotte Oral & Facial Surgery, or visit their donation page,

Interested individuals are encouraged to visit Greater Charlotte Oral & Facial Surgery’s Second Chance program website ( to learn more about the program and submit their online application. The application period is extended to residents in the greater Charlotte area and the surrounding areas and runs from January 15, 2015, through February 15, 2015.
