Dr. Cox Takes Her Talents to the Dominican Republic
M aking people smile and helping others have better experiences when “going to the dentist” is just as important to Dr. Cox as making sure that once they get there, the treatment fits their needs. Seeing her patients leave after their appointment happy and smiling inspires her to improve her skills to become the best dentist she can be.
With that idea in mind, a recent “continued education” trip took Dr. Cox to Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic to help a group of needy locals with teeth issues. Joined by a group of 10 other dental professionals, they extended their knowledge about complicated tooth extraction and bone augmentation. The dentists improved the oral health of countless needy individuals. Many teeth were extracted and additional bone added to fill in tooth sockets that prepared the jaw bone for future tooth implants.
All the dental services in Santo Domingo were gladly donated to the patients and were much appreciated. These invaluable insights will be brought back by Dr. Cox and integrated into Northgate Dental’s practice where the patients will benefit.
