IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- On July 26, Smile Generation-trusted dentists and Pacific Dental Services® (PDS®) team members embarked on a trip to the Mission at Natuvu Creek on the island of Vanua Levu, Fiji's second largest island, to provide free dentistry to those in need.


During their visit to the Mission, the team of dentists and staff members helped nearly 170 children and adults in need, performing tooth extractions, restorations and cleanings. The team brought critical oral care and preventive dental health education to residents who otherwise have no access to dental services.

"I'm so grateful for the opportunity to serve the wonderful people of Fiji.  They don't have a lot but they are so grateful for all they have and their smiles are so infectious that I'll keep them in my heart forever," Dr. Nicole Smith, Beach Dental Group.

The group included Dr. Nicole Smith from Beach Dental Group in Huntington Beach, CA; Dr. Ariella Pessah from Candlewood Smiles Dentistry and Orthodontics in Lakewood, CA; and Dr. Keith Johnson, Rose Dental Group and Orthodontics in Oxnard, CA.  Accompanying the dental care team were Jen Hamilton, Operations Manager, Imperial Dental Practice and Orthodontics in Yucaipa, CA; Brian Taylor, Operations Manager, Stoneridge Dental Group and Orthodontics in Moreno Valley; PDS Marketing Director Matt Hall; We Serve Manager Kyle Guerin; and We Serve Specialist Rachael Parker.

"It was an honor serving with this group.  It's heartwarming to see people take time out of their busy schedules to come out and care for people on the other side of the world," said We Serve Manager Kyle Guerin.
