Serving in the Dominican Republic was a Life Changing Experience
As a dentist, it is a grand privilege to provide service to a population that is truly deserving of basic dental care. As we work day to day in our practices in the US, we sometimes get lost in the pursuit and extreme efforts of making our businesses profitable. Dealing with insurance and ever expanding pressures to turn a profit, sometimes puts us in a place where we forget what we entered the profession for in the first place. There is nothing more rewarding than doing dental service in a pure form where there is nothing but hard work, basic dental skills, and loving hearts to finish out the day. I will forever be a fan of IASK and the opportunity that was provided to serve in the Dominican Republic.
With great thanks and appreciation. Dr. Richard Anderson, DDS
Dr. Anderson went to the Dominican Republic with his wife (Kim) and daughter (Alyssa) with the IASK November 2008 humanitarian team.
