Devin Hohl suffered from a chronic infection in her mouth, requiring a root canal and crown, but lost her dental insurance when she turned 21. At the dental college at A.T. Still University in Arizona, however, she was welcomed and received the care she needed – all free of charge. “It was inspiring to see the dental students, teachers, and mentors come together to relieve the athletes from the pain that has been bothering them,” said Isaac Sanft, Special Olympics Arizona’s healthy athletes coordinator.
