A.T. Still Dental trip to the Dominican Republic

Dr. White with dental students and local dentists

 

A.T.  Still Dental School Adjunct professor and three 3rd year dental students from the school’s public health study club spent the first week of November working with 2 local dentists in San Cristobal in the Dominican Republic.  This was the 3rd trip in a continuing project to provide pediatric dental care  and to supervise local people on nutrition counseling and dental prevention, education and care.  We will be returning in March 2013 to continue our work with Dr. Pimental, the clinical director and the promatories we have trained to work in the communities.  Thank you Henry Schein Cares Foundation for the Health Kits and to Kevin Upchurch, the Henry Schein regional manager in Phoenix, AZ for dental supplies.
