Dr. Donald Wilcox, our cosmetic dentist at Desert Smiles in Glendale, was recently part of a group of 12 dentists from the United States and Canada who spent a week on a combination medical mission/continuing education trip in San Pedro, Dominican Republic.

The team provided tooth extractions, grafting and implant placement.  More than 200 implants were placed, and  numerous other surgical procedures were performed at a remote clinic.  (Special thanks to the makers of Implant-One for providing the actual dental implants and grafting tools.) These procedures are generally not available in this part of the Dominican Republic.

Several Dominican dentists were in attendance to  assist with procedures and expand their training and knowledge. Patients will have the opportunity to follow up with these local professionals.

Dr. Wilcox’s goal is to make this mission happen six times a year going forward.

If you’d like to schedule time with Dr. Wilcox, please contact Desert Smiles online or call our Glendale general and cosmetic dentistry practice directly at 602-978-1790.
