by Swarit Chatterjee (writer), , April 20, 2014

Sterngold Dental LLC’s cutting edge technology and curative dentistry helped restore Sisay’s facial deformities.

Sterngold Dental LLC’s cutting edge technology and curative dentistry helped to restore Sisay, a young child from Africa. Sisay was mauled by a wild hyena when he was merely six years old. He was clinging for his life when his trip to USA turned a new leaf in his life – his deformed face was restored by experts at Sterngold’s curative dentistry. With their world class technology the Sterngold professionals worked on Sisay’s dental abutments and gave him a prosthesis which seems to gave the child a new lease of life.
