Cool Experiences and Feats – Clients

What started as a prospective root canal turned out to be a recommendation that a client get all his teeth removed because they weren't in a reparable condition. As a result he went through the procedure to remove all his lower teeth and 6 of his upper teeth. All these teeth were broken and needed to be removed for him to be fitted with dentures. The entire process took 4 months but he completed it and received his dentures. [Now if only he would wear them]

A client of mine mentioned casually attending a Beatles concert. When I asked him how it was, he said he couldn’t hear the band and was so far away they seemed tiny onstage, but that it was “history”. Another client boasts she’s been at 100 live concerts (she keeps a written list of them), including Pink Floyd, Bruce Springsteen, and the Grateful Dead.

A client who suffers from a developmental disability and schizophrenia recently completed his first year in community college where he’s working on completing his GED. After working last winter as a greeter at Walmart he’s partnering with my agency to find part time work.
