HOUSTON (FOX 26) – In the weeks before Veterans Day, a Houston dentist met a U.S. Air Force veteran who was struggling with dental issues and decided to surprise him with the gift of $15,000 worth of dental work.
Dr. David Nguyen and Retired Staff Sergeant David Tyler Harmon met at the gym and were still practically strangers when Harmon found out Nguyen was a dentist and decided to book a cleaning.
“I came in for a cleaning, and he’s like, ‘My goodness!'” said Harmon. “And I start telling him all the pain I’m in.”
Dr. Nguyen says Harmon’s teeth were in serious disrepair, requiring much more than a cleaning.
