Brian Maixner has struggled with serious dental problems since he was a kid. He was missing teeth and many of the teeth he did have were infected. He didn’t have the money to get them fixed either.
All of that changed, incredibly, when Maixner waited on an out-of-towner who happened to stop by the diner. Attorney Fred Boettcher told local reporters that he struggled with similar dental problems as a child.
When he saw Maixner’s smile, Boettcher decided to do something really special.
Boettcher went to Doo-Dah Diner manager Timirie Shibley and asked if he could tip $25,000 on top of his meal to make sure Maixner could get a new set of chompers.
“No matter what religion you might be or whether you even believe in an afterlife, the way to be satisfied in your life is to be kind to everybody and be as generous as you possibly can be,” Boettcher told the local news.
So how does Maixner look after several trips down to Boettcher’s dentist in Ponca City, Oklahoma?
