David: Rediscovering life
David is a patient who hails from the city of Richmond. While he had suffered with poor dental health for some time, he never knew what properly fitting dentures could do for his health and self-esteem until he received his new set of dentures. Unhappy with his then current situation and lacking the confidence he needed to go about his daily activities, David decided to make a life-changing decision for the better and explore what dentures could do for him.
