The Dental Bus visit to AMM in January was a huge success! During the full day clinic from 8:30am to 6pm, volunteer dentists, assistants, and interpreters treated 28 patients, most of whom presented with moderately complex needs requiring x-rays, extractions, and treatment for infection. Alliance is extremely grateful to the following volunteers for donating their Saturday to the care of the uninsured: Dr. Dan Howell, Dr. Brodie Jenkins, Dr. Ryan Galligan, Dr. Patrick Roberson, Ale Guitierrez, Marie Moody, Barbara Ingram, Kimberlie Fowler, Nathalie Grippon, Claudia Sarria, and Chip McGuirt and Bill Bailey of the Baptist Men’s Association. Other supporters responsible for the clinic’s success are Morrison & Lloyd, D.D.S., Dr. Jeff Morrison, and Ultra Dent for their donations of funding and supplies. In addition to care, individual dental hygiene packets were provided for each patient. Alliance also wishes to acknowledge the hard work of their own Leanne Ritter, who organized the entire bus visit!
Alliance is pleased to announce that the Dental Bus is scheduled for a return visit on Saturday, June 18, 2011. Once again we will need volunteer dentists and assistants, as well as funding and supplies. Anyone interested in helping, please contact Leanne at firstname.lastname@example.org.
AMM's many services would not be possible without our wonderful community partners. Thank you all!!
