This month, the Dental Clinic had a visit from one of the original founders and our source of encouragement.
Dr. Valli I. Meeks, DDS, MS, RDH, is an Associate Professor of Oncology and Diagnostic Sciences in the School of Dentistry at the University of Maryland.
Dr. Valli Meeks returned for the third time to Urukundo. She and her co-worker Dr. Salih Sawsan of Harvard University were instrumental in the startup of Urukundo Dental Clinic.
Thank you Bruce & Margie Krogh for packing and transporting dental supplies donated to Urukundo Dental Clinic by Aaron Ptak, who is the District Operations Manager at Pittsburgh Plant #9072, Patterson Dental.
Thank you Patterson Dental and especially Aaron for spearheading this gift of giving.
We also thank Dr Lisa Fonas, DMD, for her donations for our Dental Clinic. Dr Lisa is a practicing dentist in Pittsburgh, Pa. She is acquainted with Urukundo Dental Clinic through Dr Bob Dove and his wife Amy.
We are still in need of a hand held X-Ray. I really don’t know a lot about this x-ray, but I am told by our clinic staff that we really need one in the Dental Clinic. A new or good used machine would fill the bill.
