“I discovered Open Wide’s unique foundation through my affiliation with Spear Education. Clinics are funded and staffed in partnership with local communities, helping ensure strength for the long-term. Local partnership and commitment are essential, but a dental clinic can’t function without equipment or the skills of dentists. Along with my sons, I was blown away by the experience of mission dentistry with the Open Wide Foundation. It’s one of the most meaningful and rewarding things you can do. The patients are so incredibly thankful. One Trip to Open Wide and you’ll be hooked for life!”
