As rehabilitated prisoners prepare to re-enter society, Dr. Todd Mabry restores their self-confidence by giving them a healthy, rejuvenated smile
Scottsdale, AZ – Dr. Todd Mabry, a Scottsdale dentist, is committed to providing care for a wide spectrum of patients. In addition to being a participant in the American Dental Association’s Give Kids a Smile® program that offers dental services to disadvantaged children, Dr. Mabry has recently joined a nonprofit foundation called Beyond Bars.
The overall mission of Beyond Bars is to address the mass incarceration that is prevalent across America. As a dentist, Dr. Mabry’s role in the organization is to provide dental work for pre-screened, rehabilitated prisoners so they can regain self-confidence and reacclimate to everyday life.
“Each of the women that I have had the pleasure of helping have been very appreciative and have gone on to become productive citizens,” says Dr. Mabry
Dr. Mabry views his service with Beyond Bars as a way to give back to the community of which he and his patients are all a part. The nonprofit organization produces short videos and utilizes social media to develop ideas concerning public safety. By partnering with a variety of professionals and organizations, Beyond Bars hopes to advocate the development of community as a method of reducing widespread incarceration.
In a recent case, Dr. Mabry provided advanced dental work to a woman preparing to reenter the workforce. The woman came to Dr. Mabry with no teeth. After conducting a Cone Beam scan to determine if there was enough pre-existing bone for dental implants, Dr. Mabry gave the woman implant-supported dentures.
Dr. Mabry understands the importance of a healthy mouth and the effect of a smile. While a healthy smile can boost a patient’s self-confidence, it can also affect how a patient is perceived by the world around them. He also knows that not every patient in need of dental work can afford it.
As a dentist who is committed to providing the patients of his Scottsdale dentistry practice with the latest techniques and technology in general and cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Mabry sees how much a person’s dental health can affect their daily lives. By participating in programs like Give Kids a Smile® and Beyond Bars, Dr. Mabry is able to help those who are less fortunate obtain the dental work they need while simultaneously helping them excel in everyday life.
