Improving lives through our Global Oral Health Initiative Fund


A "Thank You" from Israel
An emergency grant was awarded to a village for disadvantaged young adults whose facilities, including the dental clinic, suffered from the devastating Carmel Forest fires in Israel in 2011.
"On behalf of the children and staff at the Village it is my pleasure to thank you for your support and recent donation. This gift will be used to support the fire recovery efforts."

"Thank You" from Rockville, MD

This letter is from a gentleman who received pro-bono dental care as part of a “Holocaust Survivors’ Campaign”, directed by one of Alpha Omega’s active chapters in concert with their city’s Jewish Social Service Agency.

Dear Dr. Meyer:

For the last three years I lost several teeth and suffered discomfort and pain. I continuously received dental care with various results.

Three months ago I started treatment in Dr. Meyer’s office which was very successful. Now I have new lower dentures and several crowns. People find my smile beautiful. I can eat and enjoy my meals!

This experience proved that the right doctor can do wonders. I am really grateful to Dr. Meyer for wonderful job he has done and gladly recommend his 5 star service to my relatives and friends.
