Giving back to the community.
Family Dentistry is a proud supporter of the Dr. Almanzar Foundation. The Dr. Almanzar Foundations' mission is to provide low income individuals in the Dominican Republic and Latin America access to free dental treatment, medical surgeries, equipment, medicine, and to improve their health and quality of life.
For the past 3 years, a couple of our doctors and staff have participated in a 5 day volunteer trip to the Dominican Republic. This year the event took place from October 7-11, 2015. Individuals were screened for any injuries, diseases, needs of surgery and health related issues. Some of these patients have no access to even basic health care. These patients are pre-screened by our volunteers and all services and fees are free of charge including any medicines that the individual may need. Examinations, prophylaxis cleanings, fillings, and surgical extractions are among some of the procedures performed. Please see some photos below of this years event!
