Thomasville, GA - A dentist in Thomasville had the opportunity to tell someone they'd be getting a new smile this morning.

Gwen Cooper-Williams won the Wonderful Thomasville Woman contest put on by Dr. Thomas Oppenheim's Dental Office.

Cooper-Williams was chosen for her willingness to go above and beyond in her job duties as a Crime Victim's Advocate and her volunteerism in the community. Her reaction was priceless when she found out she was the big winner.

"I think I left my body, I don't know. I was just honored to be a finalist, I really was. I said I have a chance. I really didn't know and it was a beautiful surprise," said Cooper-Williams.

Oppenheim's Office said Wonderful Thomasville Woman originated from wanting to provide a beautiful smile for someone who couldn't afford it.

Oppenheim's Office said five years ago Cooper-Williams actually went to Dr. Oppenheim's Office looking to get her teeth fixed, but couldn't afford it.

The Office told us they plan to make this an annual event.
