If there's one thing a lot of people in the world absolutely dread, it's going to the dentist. Many people have had bad experiences in the past at the dentist, and others just don't love having someone's hands in their mouth for an hour.
While there are some pretty scary dental stories out there, the majority of dentists just want your mouth to stay happy and healthy. They'll do anything it takes to make sure you're happy with your results, and they want you to feel completely confident in your beautiful smile.
He noticed her broken tooth
Dentist Kenny Wilstead went the extra mile when one woman named Kyleigha came into his office to get her wisdom teeth removed. He noticed her front tooth was broken, so naturally he asked what happened.
Kyleigha revealed that she had an ex-boyfriend who headbutted her and her tooth broke off. She had been dealing with it for two years because her previous dentist wasn't able to fix it, and she told Wilstead she would have it fixed when she got money from her tax returns.
He fixed it with no charge
But Wilstead couldn't let her walk out of his office knowing she was still dealing with a broken front tooth. He told her, "We're gonna fix that tooth right now, no charge."
In this video, Kyleigha breaks down in tears when she sees her new tooth and is extremely grateful for the kindness her dentist showed.
