The team at Amarillo Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery is proud to announce its fourth Smile Again program recipient. The program helps a member of our community by providing a free life-changing restorative procedure. This year’s recipient is a mother and grandmother from Amarillo, Patricia.

Patricia, age 60, has suffered with her oral health for over 30 years and wants nothing more than to have her family see her smile with confidence. Patricia has always struggled to make ends meet and worked multiple jobs to make sure her six children had a roof over their ends and food on their plates. In her application, Patricia wrote, “I am filled with joy and I pray to spread it in every way. Including my smile. I believe that this opportunity was not only created to change smiles but also lives. This is something that would definitely turn my life around completely!” She went on to say, “My kids who are grown now never got to see me with white teeth and I would love for my grandchildren to see their grandma with pearly white teeth but most importantly I wanna feel confident and healthy again.”


The 4-Hour Smile procedure gives patients who are missing most or all of their teeth a permanent, efficient, and cost-effective solution to completely restore their smile. Dentures used to be the only tooth replacement option for patients missing a lot of teeth, but now this revolutionary procedure allows patients to receive a full set of permanent teeth in just one day. During the procedure, a full-arch prosthesis (denture) is permanently fixed in the mouth using as few as four dental implants.

Stay tuned to this page, Facebook, and Instagram to follow along with Patricia’s journey to a new smile!
