I will be forever grateful to the help my family received from HealthySmiles. My 8 yr old son has struggled with dental issues for as long as I can remember, so when we went to the dentist and he was told that 3 more teeth had to be extracted he burst into tears, remembering the last time he had one removed while fully awake. My heart broke because I knew the cost to have the teeth saved would be out of our families financial reach. The dentist told us to contact Healthy Smiles, and after talking with Cindy and explaining our financial situation, that we were a family of 5, I worked P/T and my husband’s hours had been reduced from full time to P/T, our income was just short of qualifying for State Support - she assured me that she could help. I couldn’t believe it, we were able to save two of the three teeth while he was under a mild sedation at a fantastic facility that specialized in children. It was a very positive experience for him and I will be forever grateful.

I am forever Greatful to this program! Cindy helped organize and pay for my 3 year old to have some dental work. I didn't even know was possible for that age. She had been on an allergy medication that messes up the pH of your mouth and she got a large cavity. The tooth needed to be extracted and a space put in. Cindy organized every detail with an excellent pediatric dentist. All we had to do was show up! We are forever grateful for Healthy Smiles for ME! Thank you!

I am very thankful for the treatment my 6 year old received as a result of this organization. Not only did they arrange for the care and take care of the financial end of things, the issue was discovered by Cindy during an examination done at my sons school. I am a single, working mom who makes too much money for assistance but not enough to afford dental care for either of us so organizations like this one make all the difference. Thank you.

I was honored to be asked to work with Cindy Leavitt. I had heard the stories of the children she wanted to help and how so many families are unable to afford some basic oral care for their children. These are working families that don't fit in the bracket of State Aid and sometimes it is just a co-pay that keeps a child from having the confidence to smile. Sometimes more extensive work is needed; I have children and I know what some of this cost. I can imagine how devastating I would find it to be unable to sooth my child's pain or see his confidence diminished because of a basic need or preventive measure was not afforded. I can attest that as a board member, no one takes a salary and all proceeds go directly to children that need care. Healthy Smiles 4 Me also has a fishing derby fund raiser. We are committed to bringing smiles to Maine children. Please help us do so.
