"Now that I can smile again, I am excited to go back to school," said Gersen.
Only one day before this, hungry and in pain, Gersen stumbled through a back-to-school event with his mother and two siblings. After he had picked out a new shirt and a pair of pants, his mother noticed a sign for free dental screenings provided by Neighborhood Outreach Access to Health (NOAH). She knew that Gersen had been in pain for some time, making it difficult for him to eat, but could not afford to see a dentist.
After a quick screening, it was apparent that Gersen needed immediate attention. The NOAH hygienist scheduled a next-day appointment for emergency dental work. After the appointment, Gersen told the staff, "Now that I can smile again, I am excited to go back to school!"
