All services are free to patients. Register here for the RAM Event.

For ten days during the tail end of March 2014 I joined a group providing dental services to the underserved communities outside Cuzco, Peru. These were ten days which not only allowed for exploration of Machu Picchu and the consumption of Peruvian delicacies like guinea pig, but provided dental opportunities unrivaled by any in my school curriculum.
Local dentist gets national spotlight for his Give Kids a Smile event
WSDA Member Dr. Judson Werner opened his office on February 7 in observance of Give Kids a Smile day. Werner partnered with the Boys and Girls Club of Bellevue to provide 20 kids with $6,643 worth of fillings, sealants, prophys, exams, fluoride and oral hygiene instructions. The ADA featured his community stewardship here. Good work, Dr. Werner!
