Local woman has something to smile about - Local woman has something to smile about - Breaking News, New Brunswick, Canada

Michelle Arsenault, is a Saint John woman with Williams Syndrome.

Her debilitating condition caused her to have severe dental issues throughout her life, with teeth so misaligned they were almost in three rows. The condition of her teeth made it difficult to chew and swallow food.

Arsenault, who lives with her single mother Darlene Gallant and sister Jocelyn, works at Key Industries. Her family was unable to afford the dental work she required to fix her teeth.

That is, until the dental committee of the Saint John Kiwanis Club stepped in to pay for the procedures.

After four years, Arsenault has a Colgate smile.
