Dentist For A Day!

At the end of June, we got to help grant a seven-year-old cancer patient his wish! Working with A Special Wish Cleveland Chapter and Nurenberg Paris, we handed over the practice to Dr. Alex for the day. He wants to be a dentist when he grows up because he said if he could smile, so could you! He went through a tough neuroblastoma case and is now in remission. Alex was very attentive as he learned how to place fillings, clean teeth, pour teeth models, and take x rays.  When he had a chance to take breaks, he would show us his video game skills in his private office.  Alex was also full of jokes and going to make the best dentist one day with his ability to put people at ease.

We were so honored to participate in this great event. It was a great reminder that in this crazy world, there are people and kids going through struggles that we don’t know. Alex’s dad shared that throughout his whole cancer treatment and chemo, he never threw up once. He is one tough kid that has been through a lot in his life so far and his dream to make people smile is truly uplifting. He made us smile and laugh throughout the whole day and we can’t wait to see him back as a patient!
