Dental Team Returns From Jamaica Mission

Doctors and staff from Drs Boxx, Blaney, Lachine & Wendell recent spent a week volunteering at the Hopewell Dental Clinic, in St Elizabeth Parish, Jamaica. The team led by Dr Josh Lachine and Dr Bryan Wendell included 25, third and forth-year dental students from Howard University School of Dentistry. During the four-day clinic week the team treated over 600 patients and performed over 200 cleanings, 150 fillings and 400 extractions. The team also brought shoes, clothes, and soccer balls, donated by a local sporting goods supplier for use in summer camps.
