caring, for everyone

Dr. Morgan shares her passion for helping others

Part of the privilege of being a dentist is the opportunity to provide care to those who would otherwise not receive it.

Why do I work globally? Offering help to those at home has always been part of my career as a dentist. Working at the level of a Village in other parts of the world is equally important. It’s through this work that you become part of the bigger world. Every encounter you make becomes an opportunity to build international relationships. The world suddenly becomes a smaller place. It leaves children and parents in the world with a positive view of our country. But sometimes I believe I benefit more than anyone I help. 

 
 

kenya

Global Village Ministries

Many villages in Kenya depend on visits from dentists and physicians that come from around the world. Global Village Ministries not only provides free care to those with insufficient access to health and dental care but focuses on teaching volunteers about the local customs so that the focus of each patient encounter is not primarily about doing as much work as possible but on building relationships. The result is that dental and medical needs are met, Kenyan villagers feel cared for and understood, and the hearts of the volunteers are forever touched.

 
 
 

Guatemala

Open Wide Foundation 

Guatemala suffers from a level of inequality and widespread poverty that is extreme.  There are few things more painful than a toothache in Guatemala and few options available so infection and mouth pain often go untreated or “Tooth Mechanics” do tooth extractions with less than appropriate tools and no sterilization.  Severe caries detracts from children’s quality of life: they experience pain, infection, difficulty eating, sleep disruption and loss of school and caries affects their nutrition and growth.

The Open Wide Foundation establishes clinics in places where previously no access was available. By bringing dentists to Guatemala they bring an abundance of hope to the communities and life changing experiences to the dentists.
