Smile Generation®-Trusted Dentists and PDS® Members Travel to Fiji to Serve Those in Need
On July 26, Smile Generation-trusted dentists and Pacific Dental Services® (PDS®) team members embarked on a trip to the Mission at Natuvu Creek in Fiji to provide free dentistry to those in need. The Mission is located on the island of Vanua Levu, Fiji’s second largest island.
Altogether, The Smile Generation-trusted clinicians helped nearly 170 children and adults, performing tooth extractions, restorations and cleanings. Most importantly, they brought critical oral care and preventive dental health education to residents who otherwise have no access to dental services. Happy, infectious smiles were all the payment needed.
The group included PDS-supported clinicians Dr. Nicole Smith from Beach Dental Group in Huntington Beach, CA; Dr. Ariella Pessah from Candlewood Smiles Dentistry and Orthodontics in Lakewood, CA; and Dr. Keith Johnson, Rose Dental Group and Orthodontics in Oxnard, CA. Accompanying the dental care team were Jen Hamilton, operations manager for Imperial Dental Practice and Orthodontics in Yucaipa, CA; Brian Taylor, operations manager for Stoneridge Dental Group and Orthodontics in Moreno Valley; PDS Marketing Director Matt Hall; We Serve Manager Kyle Guerin; and We Serve Specialist Rachael Parker.
