Saving the World, One Tooth at a Time

It was in 2006 that as a first year dental student, I had wild dreams of “saving the world, one tooth at a time.” When I first heard of a dental mission opportunity, I didn’t just jump on it… I leaped and it completely changed my life.

Three years later, my dentist siblings and I started a non-profit called N.G.O. Healthcare where we brought N.G.O. Healthcare where there was NO healthcare. (Ngo is our family name and pronounced “No”). Since then, we have completed 14 international missions to Vietnam, Guatemala, Honduras, Costa Rica, Peru, South Africa, Nicaragua, Jamaica, Antigua, Brazil, Haiti and China.
