Alumni Student Reaching Out

During this year's University of Louisville's School of Dentistry Spring Break, March 17th-25th, ULSD participated in a Medical/Dental Mission Trip to Ecuador. Our Dental Team was led by Dr. David Maddy, Dr. Steve Hieronymus, and Dr. Timothy Daugherty. Hundreds of people received free medical, dental and eye care during this week and the town officials were very appreciative of their efforts to help.
As Dr. Daugherty stated, " It was certainly an honor and a privilege to be part of this group, watching each one of these students use their special gifts and talents to help others in need. The students worked extremely well together as a unit and represented ULSD in an outstanding manner."
