I had the misfortune of having a major tooth infection requiring extraction. If that wasn't bad enough, it occurred during the COVID 19 level 4 shut down. Fortunately for me my Ohakune dentist Jane Sheritt opened for emergencies at level3.

Now, I'm a pensioner. I went in to have the extraction had a few dollars set aside for payment when to my delight I was informed that I was covered by the CSC dental fund that had been implemented by you and also suggested by Jane.

My thanks to you, the relief of money staying in my pocket was the best present I've had in a little while. 

I wish more people knew of this assistance as I'm sure they'd avail themselves. 

Pls, continue the great work.
