Kettering Dentist Offering Dental Care to the Underprivileged
September 23, 2014 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsSeptember 23, 2014 - Kettering, OH - Dr. George P. Jonson has been providing dental care to the Kettering community for many years and he knows the importance of maintaining good dental health. This is why last year he decided to go to the Dominican Republic to help those in need.
George traveled to Santo Domingo with the International Dental Implant Association, an organization that goes to the country several times a year to offer dental services.
"The people of Santo Domingo were so thankful and gracious that we were there," George said. "We were happy to give them the care they needed because they don't have anything."
George performed a variety of services, including oral surgeries involving extractions as well as implants.
"These people have not had access to dental care in so long that their teeth are largely decayed and needed to come out," he said.
George was so inspired by his trip to the Dominican Republic that he's planning another excursion in February of next year, this time to Ecuador. A large contingent of both dental and medical volunteers will travel to the west coast of the country to help the locals there. This trip is being organized by Fairhaven Church.
"I'm really looking forward to going to Ecuador to see how I can help the people there," George added.
