AACD Member Dr. Theodore Chamberlain Creates Charity Linking Dentists, Faith-Based Organizations
Sedation dentist, Dr. Theodore Chamberlain, DMD, (www.SmilesByTed.com) has created ‘Believe in Smiles’ (www.BelieveInSmiles.org), the first not-for-profit organization to link network of dentists to faith-based organizations and help much-deserving members of the community achieve complete dental health and wellness.
"Our goal is to increase self-awareness of faith to both the dentist and the patient and to help everyone smile a little brighter every day," Dr. Chamberlain says.
Long-time congregate at Grace Christian Fellowship in Largo, FL, Lloyd Plum, 43, is the first patient to participate in the Believe in Smiles program. Plum received $11,000 worth of services, including a full mouth extraction and immediate teeth the same day under IV sedation at Chamberlain Dental, located at 555 Hercules Avenue in Clearwater.
“I’m so grateful that Pastor Randy Evans and his wife Becky told me about the program because I needed a lot of work and didn’t have the resources,” Plum says. “When I went to see Dr. Chamberlain for the first time, he wanted to do whatever he could to help me achieve total dental health for the rest of my life. He pulled 16 teeth and replaced them with a full upper denture and a lower partial denture. And, the best part…I had absolutely no pain whatsoever.”
“From a dental perspective, there is no greater feeling than that of directly enhancing ones outward smile, but also indirectly permanently changing ones inner beauty and self respect,” Chamberlain adds.
