SHEBOYGAN, Wis., Aug. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- For the third year in a row, Dr. Daniel Humiston performed more than 20 extractions and 30 fillings in one day. But this wasn't a typical day at his Taylor Drive Dental Care dentist's office in Sheboygan, WI. Instead, Dr. Humiston was alongside his son and daughter as they performed dental mission work in the Dominican Republic.
Along with other dentists, their families and volunteers, Dr. Humiston traveled as part of the Crown Council Humanitarian Expedition to the Dominican Republic. The volunteers moved through various churches, community centers and other public buildings to provide dental care for those in need.
"We are more than a group of individuals who travel together to provide dental care, we work as a team to truly collaborate," Dr. Humiston explains.
Often in cramped quarters with hundreds of patients lining up for the day, the Humiston family and other volunteers worked long hours to see patients of all ages. In addition to providing services, the team also provided education about good dental health.
"While we certainly didn't travel lightly, we also didn't have access to all of the tools, supplies and technology at home," Dr. Humiston explains. "Even with only the bare essentials, we were able to help these under-served communities."
The ability to use his dental training to give back to those with little access or funds to pay for dental care is very important to Dr. Humiston, he explains. The ability for his children to be a part of the trip also makes the experience that much richer.
"I chose the dental field because I wanted to help people -- all people," says Dr. Humiston, a Sheboygan dentist. "I'm proud to have the opportunity to give back in this way."
