Patricia's Story

Dental care should be part of our overall health care. I started to babysit at age 12, and I worked my summer holidays from the time I was 14. I worked steadily except for when my children were very young. Sometimes I was self-employed and at the end I was an employee. Through no fault of my own, I was wiped out financially by others three times so had to work until I was 70. I can get along on my pensions but that’s about it. In spite of having regular dental care over the years, I am now developing problems that I can’t afford to have fixed and the indignity of having to go around toothless is not something to look forward to and certainly is not a healthy way to live.
