Giving back

DSCN1005 DSCN1022 DSC_0039 DSC_0017Since 2012, Dr. Szoke and his staff have visited El Progreso, Jutiapa in Guatemala, for a week in February, to help address the dental needs of the people of the surrounding villages.  We packed up our equipment and set up a clinic at the Hospital for Malnourished Children, founded by a Jesuit Priest and for the past 30 years nurtured and expanded by an order of nuns, the Hermanas, the sisters.  It was the trust that the sisters earned from the villagers, and the trust the Doppenberg family earned from the sisters, that permitted us to work with them.
