Our Stories - Susan Dew Hoff Memorial Clinic (West Milford, WV)

Alice is 23 years old and works at a local pizza place in West Milford, WV. She doesn't receive health insurance and she definitely doesn't receive the assistance needed for dental care. Her badly decayed teeth left her unwilling to smile and she bowed her head and hid her teeth when she spoke. The Susan Dew Hoff Memorial Clinic remedied her smile by extracting six upper teeth and replacing them with a partial. Fortunately, her bottom teeth were salvaged through cleaning and restoration. Now, Alice is all smiles and holds her head high and proud.


Uninsured people include children, young adults, middle-aged adults and people nearing or at retirement.

Smaller employers are less likely to offer health insurance to their employees because premiums are prohibitively expensive.
