Felicita's Videos

Felicita learned the hard way that smoking can destroy your smile. She lost all her teeth over the course of six painful surgeries. In these commercials and extended videos, Felicita tells her story.



Felicita's Story

Felicita started smoking at age 12. By the time she was 40, Felicita had developed gum disease and had loose teeth—but like many people, she did not have a lot of pain as the gum disease got worse. In this video, Felicita talks about getting life—changing news from her dentist.



Felicita and Brett's Ad

Felicita started smoking at age 12 and Brett at age 16. Neither of them knew that smoking could harm their gums and teeth. In this bilingual TV ad, Brett and Felicita advise people not to smoke if they want to keep their teeth and their smiles.
