Anthony Ventimiglia grew up on Detroit’s east side and remembers it fondly, “I used to be on Fort Street and Joseph Campau. There were Polish, Italian, and Greek families; we had a wonderful time!” He’s spent his whole life in the Detroit area, and his daughter Bev takes care of his paperwork now, as Anthony is in his 90s. Recently, Bev has struggled to find affordable care for his teeth.
Anthony found a good dentist who made him a solid upper partial denture, but, “He wanted a lot of money and thought my insurance would cover it. They didn't, and you know it kind of upset me a little bit.” Anthony knew he’d have to find a better solution for his lower partial denture.
Bev found Covenant Community Care through her work at St. John Hospital and before long, Covenant's Dr. Ron Konopka was working with Anthony. He not only repaired the original denture but ended up doing a complete replacement! Dr. Konopka says “With forty years of experience, I’ve seen a few partials. We redesigned it & made a new one and it fit perfect! It’s just been awesome!”Anthony is incredibly thankful. “I think the Lord put us all together here and it’s been wonderful because my belief is that we may not have it all together but together we have it all and over here [at Covenant] everybody worked as a good team.” He's the kind of person you help when you give to Covenant Community Care.
