Mission Trips

Each year Dr. Whilden and Dr. Brevet, along with a team of assistants, have the privilege of working in remote areas in cooperation with other Christian mission organizations to provide much needed dental care. Although relief of pain is their primary dental focus, time is always spent teaching oral hygiene and providing fluoride treatments to children to help prevent decay. Over the years these mission teams have worked in many countries including Colombia, Peru, Bolivia, Honduras, Ecuador, Venezuela, India, Haiti, Sierra Leone, Guatemala and Nicaragua. An approved 501 (c) (3) organization, Christian Dental Missions, was formed to oversee these teams and donations may be mailed to Christian Dental Missions at 7 Broadway, Ocean Grove, NJ 07756.

Articles that Dr. Whilden has written about these trips have appeared in the Journal of the New Jersey Dental Association and are copied here.
