“CDR Val J. Jensen, my husband, returned from his second deployment to Iraq with the 13th Marine Expeditionary Unit (Special Operations Capable) in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Shortly thereafter, we were told I was diagnosed with invasive breast cancer. After surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, and continued medication, I am now a six-year survivor. The side effects from the illness, treatment and complications may cause problems with the patient’s oral health such as infection, decay, abscesses and breakage. Those experiences happened to me.
“We were very pleased with the wonderful work Dr. Parker and Dr. Pennington did in my husband’s case. When we talked with Dr. Parker, he recommended that it would be best for my health to remove all remaining teeth and immediately replace them with dentures made by him. Dr. Diane Pennington performed the oral surgery that included four implants, and Dr. Parker came to her office to place the upper and lower dentures immediately after the extractions. Three weeks later, my husband and I are so pleased with my smile and the appearance of my new teeth! Everyone is amazed at the natural look. Thank you, Dr. Parker, for your expertise which has made such a positive difference.”
