A New Smile for Eliora

Meet my beautiful daughter, Eliora.  She is 4.5 years old and just started preschool this year. She loves to play at the park, learning new things, help with chores around the house, and has currently taken on helping to potty train her 2 year old little sister.  She is full of life and loves everyone! 

About 9 months ago, she broke her front top teeth while playing.  This resulted in almost the complete loss of her top 2 front teeth, and partial loss of one of her incisors.  We took her to the dentist and we were turned turned away or referred to other providers because they said she would need to be sedated to repair or extract these teeth, and fix some other teeth she is having issues with as well. Earlier this week, we finally found a dental provider who is willing to perform this work, but for about $4600, which unfortunately my husband and I cannot afford at this time. 

We've been fighting with both our medical and dental insurance providers to have this procedure covered, but they are only willing to pay for approximately $1500 of the total expense, despite the fact that these teeth are now infected, and it is medically necessary for them to be pulled due to the risk of her infection spreading. 

We were hoping to schedule her surgery before her 5th birthday, but due to scheduling conflicts, we had to reschedule it for a couple weeks after her birthday. What she wants as a belated birthday present, or early Christmas present to finally have her teeth fixed so her friends will think she's pretty.

We know that times are tough for everyone, and we would greatly appreciate any help you can offer, even if it is only $5-$10. Donations will be used to help with dental expenses, and travel expenses since the surgery center is 3 hours away. 

God Bless and Thank you!
