Members of our campus community reach out to the underserved and provide free dental care.
Julio Carrion, DMD, PhD, Assistant Professor Periodontology and Director of Periodontal Research, has been providing free dental care to Hispanic communities on Long Island for the past seven years. He realized how costly it can be to have dental care and began offering free services to those in need and have no insurance.
Two other Faculty members of the Dental School, Drs. Douglas and Sheila Foerth, donate one day a week at their private practice location in East Setauket.
