Smiles for Maine Vets
Taking care of those who protect our freedom is a priority for the doctors and staff at Saco River Dentistry. Providing smiles for those with combat-related injuries and/or mental health compromise is one way we can give back. We work closely with the Sanford Vet Center to get patients screened into our program. For more information, call Allyson at the Sanford Vet Center at (207) 490-1513.
Honduras Mission Trip
At Saco River Dentistry, we have a mission to help others. We do this in several capacities. One of which is our annual mission trip to Honduras. Dr. Roy and assistant Doris have gone for 4 years starting in 2011. They do a week’s worth of dentistry and Christian missionary work. They work with the group Cristo Salva which helps the indigent of Honduras, namely those in Macuelizo and surrounding towns.
If you’d like to help with the mission of Saco River Dentistry, you can donate the items below:
- Monetary contribution (you will see where your donations go)
- Clothing (given to the needy in Honduras)
- Medical supplies (anything you’d buy at a pharmacy can be donated. First aid kits to unused medications)
- School supplies
- Anything else that would help the needy!
We will collect the items here at SRD and ship them down 4x a year. Drop off your donation anytime
