No Losses – Only Gains During this past Christmas season, a dental patient came to us with severe tooth pain. After an examination, he was told that he would need to lose his tooth because we were not equipped to do root canal treatment in the WSHS Dental Clinic. The patient broke down and sobbed. He told us that he was not able to handle another loss in his life. The dental staff prayed that God would provide healing and a way to save the tooth. A dentist was contacted who volunteered to bring in equipment

to treat the patient. At this busy time of year, it was amazing that the timing worked out with the patient’s and dentist’s work schedules. When the tooth was tested a few days later, there was no sensitivity and the tooth had completely healed. The patient was in awe to see how God helped to work this out! Praise God for His faithfulness with this patient and showing our clients how much He loves them and wants to preserve things that matter to each one.
