ADA member reaches out to Uganda Dental Association

May 04, 2017

Connections overseas: Dr. Jean Creasey, seated in the center, smiles after she spoke to 75 members of the Uganda Dental Association in Kampala during a five-week trip to the country in February. It was Dr. Creasey's fifth trip to the African nation, where she taught about caries management by risk assessment and educated expectant mothers on the importance of oral care for their children. "It was a lovely experience to interact with these Ugandan colleagues, who while geographically are far away felt as if we were a part of same dental family, sharing many of the same professional joys, challenges and concerns," said Dr. Creasey. "It struck me that they seemed to enjoy a similar good-natured camaraderie within the Uganda Dental Association that I have witnessed so many times within the ADA. Collegial goodwill might be a universal value within all organized dentistry."
