Dr. Leng Haong, a member of our SEAL Team Three which conducted a dental mission trip to Ghana in 2012 , recently helped change one man’s life in the Fresno area.

Alex G. first came to Dr. Haong’s office needing to get clearance to undergo a liver transplant. Unfortunately, Alex had an abscessed tooth and needed a scaling, root planing, fillings and crowns to stabilize his oral health before he could proceed with surgery. Not having dental insurance and unable to finance the dental care, he was set to travel to Mexico to have the work done.

This is when Dr. Haong nominated Alex to be part of our Community Smile Project. Together with his office team, Dr. Haong has been able to provide Alex the treatments he needed, giving him hope and inspiration for his future.
