Nashua Dental Practice Teams with Harbor Homes to Provide Free Dental Care to the Homeless

On 05/07/2012

Harbor Care Health and Wellness Center, a community health clinic for the homeless operated by Harbor Homes, Inc., provided a “Dental Day of Caring” on April 6, 2012 thanks to a unique collaboration with Dr. Albert St. Germain of Merrimack Valley Dental Care. Dr. Albert St. Germain donated dental services, supplies, and his staff to provide basic cleanings, fillings and extractions for eight hours to 22 homeless individuals who would otherwise be unable to afford these treatments. Other local dentists also donated supplies. The cost of these donated services and supplies amounted to $7,775.
Kristine Howard, Registered Nurse, Clinical Coordinator of Harbor Care Health and Wellness Center, expressed Harbor Homes’ gratitude for these services, “This is the third time that members of the local dentist community have donated their time and supplies through a Dental Day of Caring. These free services are greatly needed in the community, especially for those who are homeless. All of us at Harbor Homes, especially the patients, are so grateful to Dr. St. Germain and his staff for making this day such a remarkable success”.

“Our thanks to Tom Peterson from Henry Schein Dental, John Pace from Patterson Dental and Mike from GC America for their generous donations of supplies for the event, the Staff at Harbor Homes and our wonderful team: Mary Ellen, Suzy and her son, Germain, Stephanie, Kerry, Mary S. and Charlotte for donating their time for a wonderful cause. It was our pleasure to work on such a gracious and appreciative group of patients”, said Dr. St. Germain.
