Endodontic Practice US, a leading publication and endodontic journal, recently interviewed Dr. Fiza Singh and Dr. Peter Morgan on their involvement in the AAE Foundation for Endodontics’ Outreach Program in Treasure Beach, Jamaica. This program is an initiative to provide patients with the highest standard of care and access to treatment to save teeth that might otherwise by extracted.
Dr. Fiza Singh is an endodontist at North Shore & Brookline Endodontics (NSBENDO) and AAE Foundation trustee. She recently led a team of endodontists to the Helping Hands Clinic in Treasure Beach, Jamaica, where they provided care to the underserved. Dr. Singh explains, “It was an eye-opening experience to see so many people living in pain. They have quickly learned that they can save their teeth by having a root canal by a specialist. The result is that patients who haven’t been able to smile for years now can live and work in confidence.”
Dr. Peter Morgan is an endodontist at NSBENDO and the current President of the AAE Foundation. Dr. Morgan explains, “A lost tooth has serious emotional, social, and physical consequences. The opportunity to preserve a tooth with root canal treatment often isn’t an option for patients who have limited access to care. Our teams are honored to be there to relieve pain, save teeth, save smiles, and improve lives.”
