We are delighted to announce another winner of Dear Doctor's Ultimate Smile Makeover, Ms. Sue Tedrow of Caledonia, Michigan. Sue has endured a host of dental problems since childhood, some caused by the trauma of being kicked in the head by a horse.
Now the 47-year-old teacher's aide is finding that much of the extensive dental work she had decades ago needs replacement, while new problems have arisen. “I'm so excited,” Sue told us. “I have no dental insurance, so to get something like this - it's just huge!”
Smile Makeover Winner - Regina
We are very pleased to announce our latest contest winner, Ms. Regina Whigham of Cincinnati, Ohio. Regina is a Dear Doctor magazine reader who has long wished for a beautiful smile despite numerous, significant dental problems.
“It's just so amazing for something like this to happen to me,” said Regina, who broke down and cried when she heard the news. “I feel so self-conscious. I smile with a closed mouth. I'm so thankful for this contest. There is no other contest out there like this.”

Smile Makeover Winner - Lorna
Lorna is absolutely thrilled to be our new contest winner and her treatment will include periodontics, orthodontics, endodontics, and cosmetic dentistry. Her periodontal treatment will consist of oral hygiene instruction, scaling, and root planing. Orthodontic therapy is needed to improve the alignment of Lornaís teeth when she smiles and she will also need four root canals. Her cosmetic dentistry will consist of porcelain veneers as well as porcelain crowns. This treatment will take place over the next year. We will provide you with follow-ups as treatment progresses.
Smile Makeover Winner - Debra
Debra's treatment will show how dentistry can accomplish amazing results utilizing the latest technologies available today. Debra has become very self-conscious of her smile and the condition of her teeth. Her care will consist of the following treatments; periodontal therapy including a possible crown lengthening surgical procedure, an extraction of a failing root canal tooth with bone regeneration, orthodontics, two or three implants to replace missing teeth, teeth whitening, new porcelain crowns, porcelain veneers and bridgework.
Smile Makeover Winner - Brian
At first glance, Brian may not appear to need a new smile, but he has actually lost the ability to chew and function on one side of his bite and he is unhappy with the appearance of his front teeth. His care will consist of periodontal treatment including a crown lengthening surgical procedure, an extraction of a failing root canal tooth, three implants to replace missing teeth, teeth whitening, seven all porcelain crowns and six porcelain veneers. Thanks to our sponsors and the dentists who represent Dear Doctor, Brian will now be able to have all the dental care he needs to be returned to health.
