In the second part of our Veteran’s Smile Make-Over series we introduce you to Kevin Roof, a four-year Navy Veteran who served in the Persian Gulf, was awarded several medals and the Bronze Star. He also fought for our country during Desert Storm.
Kevin, of Hamburg, said he heard about the Smile Make-Over on AM Buffalo.
When he got out of the Navy he said he’d planned to attend college, but, “I wasn’t home ten months and lost both my parents within six months of one another,” he said. He was twenty-one years old.
“The military prepared me to be tough, but what I had in front of me was challenging,” he said. Kevin added that he had worked his whole life to give his kids a great life while he put himself and his needs second. “I’d always had great teeth and used to smile wide. Now I’m embarrassed when I should be proud.”
Of his time in the service, he said it was an incredible time because he saw 34 countries and also served a short time in Hawaii.
Kevin met with Dr. Martin who performed an examination and will put together a plan for his dental smile make-over. “This has been so easy,” Kevin said. “The staff is super nice. It’s like a spa here.”
Bottom line, Kevin said, “I just want my smile and my self confidence back.” He is sure to attain that outcome!
