NPO's & Service to Humanity
"Service is the rent we pay for being. It is the very purpose of life, and not something you do in your spare time." - Marian Wright Edelman
I consider myself fortunate and I am honored to be in a position where I can help those that may not be as fortunate as myself. As a child my parents instilled in me fundamental values of humility and respect for everyone regardless of his/her position or place in this world. Whether its is janitor, the postman or the CEO of a fortune 500 company - they all get the same level of respect and attention. It is with those values that were instilled and remains engrained in me that I feel an obligation to help those in need and give back to society some of which is gained. This is the reason I participate in many community service projects, I volunteer as a dental professional and otherwise, and it is the reason I am co-founder of the non-profit organization Dental Helping Hands.
Three classmates of Howard University of Dentistry decided they wanted to give back. The group consists of an Oral Surgeon, an Orthodontist and a General Dentist with the heart to share their talents with the world. They volunteer their time and travel to different countries to provide free dental services such as extractions, restorations, treat abscesses and cleft lip and palate repair.
I hope this inspires you to do something kind for someone, volunteer in your respective communities and perhaps sign up to be a volunteer or even a donor of our organization Dental Helping Hands. Visit our Instagram page and connect with us. Website is under construction.
