When I was approached by my lawyer, Michael Carabash at DMC Law, to go on a mission trip to Jamaica I was absolutely thrilled. I have always wanted to get involved in a charity dental organization but never knew where to start. Now I had the opportunity to give back and travel to a beautiful place at the same time.
Before getting to Jamaica there was quite some planning involved. Our group had to send over supplies and tooth brushes ahead so that we would have that ready for when we arrived. I had a lot of help from our supplier Patterson Dental, who donated anesthetic, needles, masks and gloves, to name a few. Over 200 toothbrushes were also sent down on behalf of White Willow Family & Cosmetic Dentistry.
