The team at Sonoma Valley Oral Surgery & Dental Implants developed the first annual Wisdom For Wisdom program in response to the rising cost of higher education. The program is designed to provide students a financial reprieve by removing their wisdom teeth at no cost. The program offers high school and college students complimentary wisdom teeth extractions so that the money can be used to help pay for college textbooks.
For the 2019 Wisdom For Wisdom program period, the team gifted three students complimentary wisdom teeth removal. The program accepted applications from April 17 to April 30, 2019. During this time, the team received applications from dozens of students in need. Each completed an educational and interactive application process. In addition, students submitted a short essay explaining what the procedure would mean to them if selected. The recipient was selected based on the necessity of extraction, educational achievement, and financial need.
The 2019 Wisdom For Wisdom program recipients are Cecilia T., Alexa S., and Jesus G. To follow their wisdom teeth extraction journeys, visit our Facebook page.
Stay tuned for information on the spring 2020 application period.
