Melva* lived at PeopleCare in Tavistock. During a visit, her sister came to learn that Melva had broken her dentures. Melva didn’t have any kind of financial coverage to replace them, and she only received a disability pension, which wouldn’t cover the dental expense. So Melva’s sister reached out to T.A.P. to see if there was any way support could be provided. Recognizing that there can be emotional effects due to denture loss, we felt compelled to support this family. We were able to reach out to a network of professionals and we found a solution for Melva. The denture solution was such a blessing, as Melva’s smile is lovely!
