North Conway Dentist To Climb For A Cause

This article previously ran in the Conway Daily Sun. On Sept. 17, North Conway dentist Jeff Yelle, DDS, will attempt a one-day ascent of Mount Timpanogos in Utah’s Provo Valley. Timpanogos rises to 11,752 feet above sea level, making it the second-highest mountain in Utah’s Wasatch Range. Dr. Yelle and his practice, Eastern Slope Dental, are supporting the Dentists’ Climb For A Cause Foundation’s free oral health education and treatment projects in Guatemala, Nepal and Northern India. “We’re deeply touched and inspired by the generosity that Jeff and other dentists from across the nation are demonstrating by committing to this endeavor,” says Daniel A. Bobrow, executive director of Dentists Climb For A Cause, a non-profit charitable organization that provides dental care to children in need. “Such acts are a testament to Jeff’s and his team’s commitment to the health and well-being of people in North Conway and across the globe,” he continued. “While we believe charity begins at home, it should never end there.” Says Dr. Yelle, 36, who with his family recently relocated to North Conway: “I have always believed in living a life for others. I am fortunate enough to have a skill set that allows me to give back. There is such a need around the world when it comes to oral health, and the work that Climb for Cause does is invaluable. I am grateful I can help.” While participants have diverse backgrounds and hail from different parts of North America, they all share a common purpose: to help children who have never had dental care nor been taught how to care for their dental...

Baumrucker Memorial Clinic

An Open Letter To Monique Baumrucker… Pledge Your Support Here Dear Monique – Thank you for your generous sponsorship of SmileTree’s Oct 31 – Nov 7, 2015 dental clinic in Kathmandu, Nepal. The clinic hosted a total of 12 volunteers who provided critical first time and follow up dental care to 944 children and their teachers. The twelve volunteers traveled to Nepal from six states in the US as well as from Canada. The group included 6 dentists, two hygienists, and four non-dental volunteers. The clinic was set up in a classroom of the Shree Mangal School in Boudha on the outskirts of Kathmandu. Senior students from the host school worked alongside volunteers assisting chairside, leading children in toothbrush instruction, managing the lines of children, and keeping instruments sterilized and stocked. This group worked a total of six days – days rich in cultural interaction and often long and demanding work. As you know, our model of care is to treat a school of children, seeing them class by class. Each child is given an initial dental exam, a new toothbrush and tooth brushing instruction. After their exam, children receive all necessary care – fillings and extractions – to bring them back to full dental health. This may take up to three visits to the clinic, and a strong effort is made to complete these visits during the clinic’s six days of operation. Each child also is given a preventive fluoride treatment and a dental cleaning when time permits. Most importantly, after each school receives the needed care, they are scheduled to return to the clinic every 1.5 –...
