SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - A San Diego woman known for helping others got the gift of a new smile Wednesday.

Twyla Green got a life-changing surgery and a new set of teeth as the lucky winner of the Smile Again program.

"You can do anything as long as you put your mind to it,” Green said. “God sends people that will help you.”

The initiative, hosted by Oral Surgery and Dental Implant Specialists of San Diego, offers the community suffering from poor oral health the opportunity to apply a free $50,000 smile.

They tell 10News Twyla was selected out of more than 200 San Diegans.

Twyla says she’s lived her life taking care of other people; this opportunity is a way to help allow her to feel the confidence she helps others achieve.
