Malik’s* mom reached out to Sonrisas because her 4-year-old son was in severe pain due to his eleven cavities, he had been crying for three days straight! Malik was unable to go to school, the pain was so intense. Malik’s mom told our Care Coordination Team, “Please, I beg you, we need to see the dentist.” Malik was treated several times in a span of five months at Sonrisas Dental Health, he had never seen a dentist prior to becoming a Sonrisas patient. Malik had multiple cavities filled, additionally, he needed a baby root canal and a stainless-steel crown to fix his oral health issues. Malik’s family relies on Sonrisas for their oral care.
