My precious girl


I have a precious little girl, aged 9. Her teeth are scew and two of the top ones, cannot grow out properly.(It is permanent teeth) The problem is I am a single mother, I do not have a medical aid and cannot afford the procedure. Is there anywhere I can take her in the Jhb/Pta area where they will be able to help us with a payment plan, it' s hurting her feelings when she gets teased at school and doesn' t do much for her self confidence. My heart breaks for her every time she cries about the teasing and I cannot do much for her,as Im battling financialy.

Take your daughter to the Johannesburg Hospital Dental unit or the one at Pretoria Academic hospital.
Both these units will treat her at no cost. The only problem is the waiting list (i think it's around 6 months)
But the sooner you go, the sooner can treatment be started.

Good luck
