Our dedicated team of 22 volunteers gave their time and skills on Saturday, March 18, to provide comprehensive dental care to 28 patients in need in our community. The dental exams and treatments included approximately 166 procedures. Every year we reach out to the community by contacting schools, churches and the Keystone Opportunity Center to connect with residents who could benefit from our Smile Day event. Sara Cassel, daughter of our dental hygienist Jen Cassel, took our photographs.
Our First Dental Mission to Nicaragua, February 10-18, 2017
“Weaver, Reckner and Reinhart Dental Associates has always reached out in our local communities to take care of the dental needs of individuals and families who need dental care and access to dental care. In February we expanded our services to another community in need, a community beyond our borders and a community that receives very little dental care,” says Dr. Todd Weaver. “We spent an entire week treating patients in Nicaragua with the Hearts, Hands & Smiles Foundation, an organization founded by Robert Ayers of Telford, PA.”
Dr. Todd Weaver and Dr. John Reckner led the trip to Nicaragua with volunteers from our dental team. View our Nicaragua Dental Mission on our facebook page and on social media #wrrSmiling #wrrDentalMission.
Thank you to everyone who has contributed to our dental mission!
Power outages, equipment held in customs, and dentistry on a front porch! Nothing deterred Dr. Todd Weaver, Dr. John Reckner and our team from providing over 800 procedures on nearly 350 people during our inaugural Dental Mission to Nicaragua this February 10 to 18. We worked in the remote communities of Los Navarrete, belonging to the District of San Rafael del Sur, and La Aduana 2, belonging to the District of Villa El Carmen. We set up mobile units and chairs, and even treated on the front porch of a local woman who offered the use of her house.
