The Doctors: Engaged Woman Desperate For Beautiful Smile
When Judie’s boyfriend proposed, she was beyond overjoyed, but she still couldn’t smile. Judie explained on The Doctors that the condition of her teeth started to worsen when she was young because her father was very sick, and she was no longer a priority. Judie shared that her teeth come out when she eats and then she glues them back in. She said it’s hard to look in the mirror and she doesn’t go out of her way to meet new people. She said she was shocked that her fiance would even want to date her, and said her fiance has no idea what she has to go through with her teeth.
Dr. Travis Stork said no one wants to have a hard time smiling on their wedding day, so they sent Judie to see cosmetic dentist Dr. Bill Dorfman to see if anything could be done. Dr. Dorfman explained that on her upper arch, two molars look okay, but the rest of the teeth need to come out. He also said other than one molar on the bottom, the rest of her lower teeth are bad as well.
Dr. Dorfman said he needed to take some models and think about things to see what they could do for Judie. Judie, her fiance Matt, and Dr. Dorfman joined The Doctors on the show. Dr. Stork said clearly Judie has a great heart, but she hadn’t even seen a dentist in over ten years.

Dr. Dorfman explained that Judie’s case is one of the hardest to do, but he was going to do something before her wedding. He said they were basically going to have to extract 21 teeth, save three, and then he’s going to put in an immediate denture that looks like “beautiful teeth” and will be held on by mini implants that will stabilize the teeth and prevent her from losing more bone. He showed Judie a picture of what she will look like when he’s done and even my jaw dropped when I saw the after picture. What an incredible difference!
Dr. Dorfman also said that Judie and her fiance Matt were leaving the show right then, going with him, and starting the procedure right away, so the next time everyone saw her, she would have “the most beautiful smile that money can buy.” Dr. Dorfman also shared that he will be doing the procedure for free. Matt said it means Judie will finally be able to see how beautiful she really is.
