VMSN: An Amazing Experience

Alison came into our dental clinic in August of 2016. She saw VMSN as a solution for her own healthcare after not qualifying for Medicaid and could not afford her employer’s insurance which was too expensive for her. She is a single mother of two who was able to sign her children up for the CHIP program and for years went without care herself.

“Without VMSN, I don’t know how I would have been able to financially take care of some much needed dental work.  I work full-time and make too much for Medicaid, but not enough to pay for my own insurance. The opportunity to be treated here has been such an amazing experience, I am so thankful to be able to receive services here. Thank you!”

Alison was diagnosed with a dental abscess and given antibiotics immediately to rid her infection. After her infection was stable, she underwent root canal therapy and said in her own words “was one of the most pleasant experiences she has had in a dental office.” Before coming to VMSN, Alison had her share of low-cost dental visits that resulted in unnecessary tooth extractions instead of root canals. She wonders today whether or not those pulled teeth could have been saved if only she had the finances. Alison is beyond confident in our dental providers here at the clinic and always looks forward to her appointments.

“The dental students that have been working on me are far better than dealing with the dentists I have dealt with the last 6 years…interaction at VMSN is good and it’s a good experience.”
