Meet Cindy A., Our Second Chance Recipient!
Drs. Marashi and Haghighi are pleased to announce the finalist of our Second Chance program is — Cindy A. Over 500 people applied for the chance to receive a brand-new smile with a full-arch replacement procedure. Cindy, 41, is a CMS school cafeteria worker from Charlotte. Unfortunately, she lives in constant pain and struggles with eating solid food due to her 19 severely damaged and decayed teeth. Much of the damage stems from growing up in an underprivileged family. For much of her adolescent life Cindy, did not have access to dental coverage. As a result, she rarely visited the dentist and has suffered from failing teeth ever since. As a single mother to three adopted children and one of her own, Cindy is determined to give back to her community and continue to provide for her children despite her challenging upbringing. Her incredibly hard work has not gone unnoticed! The team at Greater Charlotte Oral & Facial Surgery is proud to offer Cindy this life-changing opportunity to gain the fully-functional and beautiful smile she deserves with a full-arch restoration using dental implants.
The doctors at Greater Charlotte Oral & Facial Surgery are partnering with restorative dentist Dr. Kavi Sagunarthy from Gold Hill Dentistry, Pittman Dental Laboratory, and Straumann Dental Implant Company to complete Cindy’s treatment. Following the personalized treatment plan, Cindy will have a full set of permanent teeth.
About the Second Chance Program

The program was open to Greater Charlotte residents who suffer from severe oral health issues and cannot afford the corrective treatment. Following receipt of the applications, the applicant pool was narrowed down through a detailed series of oral examinations and interviews to determine our finalist. Cindy will follow a personalized treatment plan at our practice to receive her new smile!
