You know that feeling when all seems lost, then God shows up? My husband Bill recently had all his teeth pulled and had to wait 8 weeks for the swelling to go down in order to get his dentures. The longest 8 weeks of his life, I think. We went on a 65 mile journey to St. Louis to one of those same day dental places where you leave with your new smile that day. To make a long story short, Dr. Giganti, the dentist informed Bill that extensive oral surgery would be necessary before dentures could be made. This sent my husband into a tail spin as our dental insurance was maxed out and so was our checkbook! His worst nightmare was coming true. He may have to go without teeth indefinitely! The kind dentist took pity on Bill and made a phone call to an Oral Surgeon he knew, asking him for a favor. Could he see us immediately as we had traveled so far and could he work with us on the cost of surgery? God bless Dr. Giganti. Dr. Ervin Simmons told us to come right over to his office and he would work us in. Wow, what nice people! How often does such kindness and concern for perfect strangers in business in a big city happen? It was definitely a "God Thing". To make a long story short Dr. Simmons knocked $1,100.00 off the cost of the procedure in order for Bill to be able to afford to get it done! WOW!! Did I forget to mention that we prayed on the drive to Dr. Simmons office that God would provide a way for Bill to get the procedure done that we could afford. God gave me a number while we prayed which kept coming back to me as I waited out in the waiting room and sure enough it was the exact amount that Dr. Simmons charged Bill for the surgery! Like I said, a "God Thing". The good Doctor was terrific and his office staff wonderful. We are grateful for the kindness of strangers. Their desire to do a good thing for someone in need rather than go for the almighty dollar. In this day and age that is very rare. May God Bless them. If you are in the St. Louis area and in need of good dentist call Dr. Giganti. If you need an Oral or Maxillofacial Surgeon, I highly recommend:
Ervin Simmons, IV, D.M.D.

I'm so glad we serve a loving God who provides for all our needs and I give Him all the glory. Until next time... God Bless,
