GREAT EXPRESSIONS DENTAL CENTERS’ DADELAND, FLORIDA TEAM OFFERS DENTAL SERVICES TO OVER 1,300 STUDENTS ON JAMAICAN MISSION TRIP

(Sept. 12, 2018)Great Expressions Dental Centers dentist Dr. Catalina Carrillo, along with Senior Practice Administrator Rosalba Colls and Expanded Dental Assistant Jennifer Hoo recently offered dental care services to students at Dinthill Technical High School and Guy’s Hill High School in Linstead, a rural Jamaican city in St. Catherine. Over the course of two days, Dr. Carrillo, Colls, and Hoo provided free dental services to over 1,300 students. This opportunity was put on by the Dinthill Technical Past Students’ Association’s Florida alumni chapter.

“I feel grateful to have been given the opportunity to attend the health fair in Linstead and provide dental care to those who may have otherwise had to go without and those who face a financial burden in order to receive such services,” Dr. Carrillo said. “We plan to attend the health fair next year and are thankful to Dinthill Technical Past Students’ Association’s Florida alumni chapter for inviting us to the fair.”

The two-day health fair is aimed at alleviating the cost of back-to-school medical and dental health screenings for parents and benefits students. Services at the health fair, which featured 62 medical professionals, included vision and blood pressure testing, teeth cleaning, vaccinations, and much more. A long-standing patient of Great Expressions, who serves as a member of the Dinthill Technical Past Students’ Association, introduced the organization to the program.

Throughout the year, Great Expressions professionals participate in initiatives and donation opportunities to better the communities they are privileged to serve, as well as communities around the world.
