It is difficult to smile when one has missing teeth, because he knows that it doesn’t look good to the one who sees him smile. You might have had a similar experience with this when you were a kid, and your milk teeth started to fall out. Just imagine if you’re an adult and you lost your permanent teeth, which will not be replaced naturally. While the more fortunate can buy dentures to serve as prosthetics, those who are less fortunate cannot afford that, and they lose their ability to smile, and with that, their confidence, too. Thankfully, there are people who understand their predicament well.
A Brazilian dentist named Felipe Rossi has been traveling the world and helping poor people in need by doing what he does best―giving a reason to smile and restoring lost confidence. For many people, dental health is a pure luxury and they simply can't afford it. They have been given a chance to get the assistance they need for free thanks to Doctor Rossi and his NGO Por1sorriso, which he founded back in 2016.
