Never underestimate the power of a great smile to bolster your self-esteem and confidence.
A teenage skateboarder was devastated when he suffered an accident where he smashed his mouth and broke several teeth. Thankfully, a kind dentist caught wind of the situation and decided to donate his skills to help the kid out. The look on the young man’s face when he sees his restored smile for the first time is truly heartwarming.
His eyes light up like he’s a kid on Christmas morning the second the dentist places the mirror in front of him. He can’t believe how perfect his teeth look, especially after living with the jagged remains of his front teeth for several weeks before the dentist appointment. Seconds after he gets a good look at his mouth the boy has a reaction we all understand — he bursts into tears of joy!
He’s clearly so thrilled to have his smile back! The teen quickly recovers and stands to hug the dentist, who can’t seem to stop beaming at the boy either. What a happy moment for all involved. This is the sort of pro-bono work that must make dentists feel like they’re truly doing something wonderful for others.
Just look at this young man’s beautiful new smile!
No matter how busy we get, it’s important to find ways to use our skills and talents to do some good in the world. This dentist’s kindness will give this teenager his confidence back, which is truly a priceless gift! Thank you, doctor!
Watch the teen looking at his new smile for the first time in the video below, and don’t forget to share.
