FDCP Patient Testimonials

Treatment through the FDCP has life-impacting results for program patients, even beyond improving their oral health. This type of opportunity can be an invaluable turning point and a catalyst toward a future built on stronger mental/emotional/physical well-being; helping patients overcome obstacles that they previously felt were insurmountable, and opening doors to more opportunities.

I can not express to you enough how much gratitude I have for all that your program has contributed to the many changes in my life, both professionally and personally. Without the program, I would not have been able to have the position I currently hold; I am able to present in a professional manner. What a change from this time last year when I feared I would be unemployable in my field. I have been able to break a cycle of poverty I had been living in due to limited options for employment. And a bonus, I have a perfect smile.

Eliminating stress has been the key thing (impact). Without private insurance, it is impossible to pay the large amounts for the upkeep of your teeth, yet it is necessary for our overall health. The entire team is exceptional. You cannot ask for more personal, professional, and caring group of people. Their compassion is extraordinary.
