Smile Generation® Dentists Travel to Ethiopia to Serve Those in Need

IRVINE, Calif. (Oct 19, 2010) – On Oct. 1, 2010, nine brave Smile Generation dentists, as well as 40 other individuals, embarked on an incredible adventure to serve the dental needs of the people of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

Throughout the weeklong trip, the dental team was able to see almost 1,800 patients visiting government clinics, orphanages, and a 75-year-old village named Korah.  The village was set up to transplant people with leprosy outside of the city.  Korah is trulyEthiopia’s outcast. “What an incredible blessing it was to be able to meet and care for the people of Korah,” said Smile Generation We Serve Manager, Kyle Guerin. “We came to make an impact on the lives of the people of Korah, we left with Korah making a huge impact on all of our lives.”

The trip was lead by Dr. Moody Alexander, an orthodontist inArlington,Texas. The group included Dr. Yasmin Easley from Palmdale, CA; Dr. Paul Gebhart from Desert Ridge, AZ; Dr. Ashleigh Harrison from Glendale, CO; Dr. Tanisha Jackson from Redlands, CA; Dr. Keith Johnson from Oxnard, CA; Dr. Dean Lambridis from Thousand Oaks, CA; Dr. Andrea Moore from San Bernardino, CA; Dr. Nikki Norton from Las Vegas, NV; and Dr. Eric Swensen from Tucson, AZ.
