As a company, we have been fortunate enough to participate in and host many charitable events in our local community and beyond. Collaborating as a team outside of the office and creating a positive impact within the world gives us a great sense of accomplishment. Giving of ourselves is a big part of our culture, who we are and who we want to be. We are better together, making a difference one event at a time.
Mission Trip to the Dominican Republic: In November, our team collaborated with World Mission Partners and traveled to the Dominican Republic to provide Dental Care to the local villages. This adventure came with much anticipation as we raised funds collectively and separately for the better part of the 2018 year in order to make it possible. We are so grateful to all who supported us in this endeavor. It is safe to say that this trip was once in a lifetime for each member of the Paradise Dental Associates Team.
After treating nearly 600 patients during our week serving the local villages of La Romana, D.R. we felt there must be more that we can do. As a Team, we have adopted a young girl and her infant to support them in their daily needs and as the mother works to graduate high school over the next 5 years.
In addition, Dr. Stephen and Dr. Helyne have made a personal connection with two of the newly appointed doctors they served along-side of during our trip and are currently helping them apply for visas so that they can come to our office and train extensively in 2019.
