Argosy Twin Cities Takes Dental Care to Jamaica

(Minnesota, May 2015) The Dental Hygiene program at Argosy University, Twin Cities believes in a "hands-on" approach to teaching its students about community service.  Four students, led by supervising faculty, Joanna Rohlfsen (DDS), Darcy Castaneda (RDH) and Karen Gulliver (PhD), recently returned from a trip to Hopewell, Jamaica where they logged volunteer hours for the Tryall Fund/Sealant Project.  On the first day, 84 children and adults received oral health care.  A total of 651 patients (421 of whom were disadvantaged children) received dental services over the course of the five day trip.

Olivia Masry, DDS, dental director for the Tryall Fund Dental Mission 2015, expressed her thanks to the visiting group from Argosy University, Twin Cities, saying, “I am sure you are aware of the high caliber of your staff…I am not sure if you are fully aware of how outstanding your young recent graduates were.  They rose to the occasion – fulfilling their duties in a difficult makeshift clinic, at speeds that they could never have imagined, and with the utmost compassion, care and professionalism.  You should be very proud of them and the guidelines and skills you have instilled in them.”
