Save Herb from the Curb's Smile!

Our patient, Herb Watts, or as many locals call him, 'Herb from the Curb' is scheduled to undergo a complete reconstruction of his teeth through dental implant surgery. Herb is a local celebrity known for his amazing smile and positive outlook on life, as a 20+ year Skycap at Southwest Airlines. Over the last two decades Herb's smile helped bring sunshine to thousands of travelers at San Antonio's International Airport.

However, due to a severe case of acid reflux and a long road to finding the right course of treatment, his teeth have been decimated by acid. The acid has eroded the enamel of his teeth to its root, causing intense pain, inflammation, and infection. Without dental implants, Herb faces long-term health concerns such as tooth and gum decay, nerve damage, heart disease, and a host of other health issues. Herb has always taken care of his teeth and despite his best efforts, the acidity eroded all of his teeth.

Periodontist, Dr. Pamela Ray, and dentist, Dr. Joseph Ferro is working together to rebuild Herb's dental health. He is scheduled to undergo three different procedures over the course of three to six months in order to receive a full set of dental implants.

And while Herb has dental insurance, they have refused to cover this because dental implants are considered "cosmetic," despite all of our medical evidence and recommendations. Herb's overall health is at stake.

Help us give Herb his health and smile back! San Antonio needs 'Herb from the Curb'!
