Last month, Philanthropist Dr. Thomas C. Watson of Broomall Dental Health (bdhpc.com) in Delaware County PA, gave a lending hand to the gracious people of the Dominican Republic. Dr. Watson, his 30 colleagues and 40+ assisting staff , arrived in the DR armed with 15 large suitcases of dental supplies and equipment. 1.5 million dollars worth of time, materials and energy was all generously funded by Dr. Watson and participating Doctors. In their 3 days there, they treated up to 200 patients daily, who had been missing teeth and acquiring bone loss for years. The Doctors and staff worked grueling, yet rewarding hours in the hot Dominican heat, some days surpassing 11 hours. Through the assistance of The American Dental Implant Association, Dr. Watson was able to perform many much needed, highly advanced surgeries including: major sinus augmentation, bone grafting and implant placement procedures.
After successful completion of his second dental missionary trip to the DR, Dr. Watson was awarded his well deserved fellowship certificate with The American Dental Implant Association. When asked about his experience, Dr. Watson stated, "It was a tremendously humbling and enlightening experience. The patients, though mostly non-English speaking, were extremely gracious and grateful to our group of dentists hailing from all over the US. I look forward to my next endeavor with the A.D.I.A."
