Get Rocky's Smile back

On January 22nd, my brother was involved in an accident while bicycling home at night. The roads were wet and his back tire slipped out from under him while making a right turn. His face collided with the edge of the sidewalk's curb, knocking him unconscious. He was transported via ambulance to the Sutter Davis Hospital where he regained consciousness 5 hours later. The injury consisted of six broken teeth (varying in severity), fractured maxilla, and a moderate to severe concussion. Unfortunately the incident occurred the weekend before midterms, which didn't serve my brother favorably.

Between the pain induced headaches, drowsy medication/pain killers, and constant dental/physician visits, he was forced to file an incomplete for an important course that was a prerequisite to all his future classes next quarter. In order to stay enrolled and not lose his financial aid, my brother dropped his registered courses to pick up left over classes and changed his major from Biochemistry/Molecular Biology to general Biology.

In an effort to minimize headaches and pain, the exposed dental nerves were covered with a composite as a temporary fix. His teeth are still very sensitive and vulnerable due to the compromised enamel, which has led to an accelerated rate of decay and significant infection. So far, two root canals have been started, but both still need to be finished. He also still needs one dental extraction/implant, two additional root canals, and some chipped teeth repaired. Other costs include ambulance, hospital, and neurologist fees not covered by his insurance. We are expecting his bills to exceed $25,000. I am asking for help from our family & friends in this time of need. No donation is too small. Together we can help get Rocky's smile back!
