Smile Dental Clinic Volunteer Program coming to an end


Only one opportunity remains for island children and adults to benefit from free dental check-ups at the San Pedro Smile Dental Center at Holy Cross Anglican School. With hopes at bettering the dental health of children, the Smile Dental Clinic sponsors a number of volunteers each year each. Since January 2016, the volunteer program has had a host of American dentists and volunteers providing this essential service to the community. The final free clinic as part of the program will be held from May 4th to the 6th, with service being provided by Dr. Hal Soloman and other volunteers.Volunteer Dentist for Smile Dental Clinic-2

On behalf of the island community, The San Pedro Sun also thanks all those who have volunteered at the San Pedro Smile Dental Clinic; your service is greatly appreciated.
