Alumni Serve the Needy in Honduras

Mark Jensen, DMD '88 (pictured above) and Warren Whitnah, DMD '68 provided oral care in Honduras for eight days this winter, as part of a dental and medical team that included the school's General Practice Residency director Sean Benson, DDS.

Dr. Benson estimated that the dental team—providing a full complement of dental services including restorations and extractions—cared for at least 500 patients between December 26, 2013 to January 2, 2014.

This was the latest in a number of visits the trio have made to Honduras. "After five years, we are starting to see the impact of our care in these communities," said Dr. Benson.
