Coolsmiles has joined forces with the Emmy winning TV show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and donated an Extreme Makeover: Orthodontic Edition of their own.
As most of you already know because of all the media coverage, the Lutz family of East Setauket, NY was the recipient of a Long Island Extreme Makeover set to begin on Tuesday June 22 and completed by the end of the week.
Unlike the show’s traditional early morning door knock, Ty Pennington made the announcement to the family at Yankee Stadium on the Jumbotron prior to the NY Yankees vs. the NY Mets game on June 20th. Read all about it here.
After reading about this in the news, Dr Leon Klempner and Dr David Amram opted to support the effort by offering complete orthodontic care to all the members of the Lutz family at the press conference.
Many special needs patients, especially with Downs Syndrome require extensive dental care due to developmental issues resulting in missing or unerupted teeth that can cause health issues later on in life. Orthodontic treatment is often required to address these problems and outside the realm of possibility for a family with special needs as a result of expensive medical and dental care not covered by insurance.
The entire Coolsmiles Team is thrilled they are able to help. They don’t do plumbing… and they don’t do electrical, but they can build beautiful smiles that last a lifetime for the Lutz family in Setauket.
What is your reaction to everyone coming together on Long Island to help this very special family? Please leave a comment below with your thoughts.
