Drs. Jamie and Jon have just returned from a Pediatric Dental Mission in the Zavkhan Province of Mongolia. They joined 13 other Dentists and Assistants with KIDS (Kids International Dental Services). 2016 children were treated in 6 days! All of the kids had fluoride treatments and 751 children had a total of 1,220 rotten, painful teeth removed. It was an amazing adventure!

Cambodia Dental Outreach 2014, Kids International Dental Services

Overwhelmed and exhausted we sadly leave our friends in intriguing Cambodia. A total of 2802 children were screened and fluoridated and over 1300 children had at least one dental extraction. A hugely successful dental outreach!

It is hard to articulate what draws us here every year. But one thing is for certain, the children here are in desperate need of many things. Despite the adversity though, they are most charming and lovable! Until next year xoxo

January 2014, Health Care International, Maypen, Jamaica.

Even our patients in NJ helped with our dental volunteer project this year. We asked our children in our practice to donate hand made "loom" bracelets to contribute to the needy kids of Jamaica and wow did they ever! We received over 2100 bracelets to bring to the children of Jamaica after they received dental care from Drs. Jamie and Jon and the Health Care International Team. Here's a clip of the kids.....Thank you everyone!!

Humanitarian Pediatric Dental Outreaches

Dr. Jamie is dedicated to giving children throughout the world something to smile about. Twice a year she travels to impoverished countries throughout the world on Pediatric Dental Missions, where she volunteers her time, providing free dental care to children who have often never seen a dentist before.

Dr. Jamie, who is an Assistant Clinical Professor at Columbia University College of Dental Medicine, provides care through two wonderful organizations, KIDS (kidservices.org) and Health Care International (hcireachout.com). Teaming up with her dental students from Columbia Dental School and other dedicated dental health care workers, Dr. Jamie has travelled to Cambodia, Guatemala and the interior of Jamaica to provide treatment to children that have absolutely no access to dental care. Many of the children are orphaned and have never seen a toothbrush. Dental decay is rampant. The team provides dental extractions, cleanings and preventative services to the patients.

Dr Jamie's husband, Dr. Jon Golub, an orthodontist, joined Dr. Jamie on her last two missions. He is now a partner with Dr. Jamie in her commitment to provide dental care to children in need throughout the world.
