Derrick Dudley was born with Cerebral Palsy. Despite the diagnosis, he looked and felt no different than the other kids. During his teenage years, he developed dystonia which effected his speech. Dystonia causes your muscles to contract thus making it hard to control your body. So, he took medicine to try and cope with the spasms. The medicine then caused all, but three of his teeth to call out.
This journey has taken over a year and we want to thank all of our donors who helped get Derrick a new smile!
A BIG thanks to Dr. Kuklok at Carmel Mountain Oral & Facial Surgery, as well as Dr. Dickinson at the Center for Oral Health & Prosthetics.
