“Dentists are known for their compassion and giving nature. What we don't do well is toot our own horn for doing good deeds. I am willing to bet that you won't look far for a colleague who has gone on a mission trip, volunteers at a local clinic, or volunteers for organized dentistry in some way. Just ask them and they will tell you that they feel they get back a lot more than they give. There is also camaraderie and fun involved with volunteering on any level.”Carol A.
