"Getting Your Money's Worth" with Judith West
|Dr. Frank R. Egan|
- Specialist, Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics
"Smiles do change lives", asserts Dr. Frank R. Egan, Long Island Orthodontist, a volunteer for the national non-profit organization, Smiles Change Lives. "It's wonderful to see a child change from being shy and hiding his/her mouth, to being more outward going and proud to smile." Dr. Egan launched the program on Long Island in 2008 to provide essential orthodontic treatment for children from low income families. A full treatment can last from one to two and a half years with an actual cost of $5,000. Eligible applicants ages 10 to 18 can receive full treatment for $500. Applicants and families must be willing to commit to investing time in the treatment, but the results are worth it -- from raising self-esteem to career enhancement. Dr. Egan discusses his commitment to the program with Judith West on Getting Your Money's Worth.
