He knew he needed to see a dentist. What he didn’t know was that he was also suffering from dangerously high blood pressure. Lucky for Shane, he visited Mercy Health – Youngstown Mobile Dental Care, a convenient and affordable option for dental care that is provided by your generous donations. During his exam, the staff discovered Shane’s high blood pressure and immediately connected him with a Mercy Health clinic. “I’m very glad I went there because most places would have just yanked my teeth out,” Shane said. When his blood pressure was under control, Shane revisited the mobile dental van and addressed the dental issues that had been causing him pain for months. “As soon as she got them pulled out, I realized how much pain I had been dealing with.” Shane knows he couldn’t have gotten the treatment he needed if it weren’t for these services that you help provide. “I have my daughter and I want to make sure she’s taken care of, so I put off taking care of myself if I have to go without to pay my bills,” said Shane. I’m very thankful for these services,” Shane shared. “This is needed and I’m very grateful that I was able to participate.” Your donations helped Shane get the medical and dental help he needed foundation.mercy.com/youngstown That’s what a will can be.
