Mission Trip to China for Hope Smiles
AACD member, Dr. Phillip Kemp, of Kemp Dental in Brentwood, Tennessee, is founder of the nonprofit organization Hope Smiles, which restores hope by restoring smiles.
Dr. Kemp, along with dental assistants and hygienists from Kemp Dental, traveled to Maria’s Big House of Hope (MBHOH) in China to provide dental services for the nannies at this hospital and orphanage. Many of these women had never had any dental care which made the work long and difficult, but they were so appreciative of the services they received. The staff was also able to spend time with the beautiful children at MBHOH.
You can learn more about this wonderful trip from Dr. Kemp’s blog and the Hope Smiles Facebook page. The dental team and Hope Smiles is diligently working to increase awareness for their nonprofit and plan schedule additional trips in the future – locally, regionally, and globally – and would appreciate any support from fellow dental professionals.
