Friends of Drug Court Award Application
“For the last 2 ½ months I have been getting my teeth fixed with the help of a ‘share-of-cost’ plan. I’ve had 19 teeth pulled, 4 root canals and 4 crowns.
Beginning in January though my monthly share is $778. I still need to get my top denture plate & my bottom partial.
The dentist said I will lose the bottom teeth he’s fixed if I don’t finish this. Also, I’ve been starting to feel better about myself as my mouth and smile have started to both look and feel better.
Because of my job I’ve been able to save about $550 over the past months. My problem is that I am still lacking about $250 of my co-pay. I feel that I have come so far in getting my dental issues addressed, but need some help in seeing it to completion.
If awarded this money I could get my dentures without undue delay and finally get my smile back. I know that I came into this problem because of my own actions (i.e. my drug use), but I would really appreciate some help here.
Thank you very much for your time and consideration.” Eric
