Community Service & our “Give back” program
Dr. Chi is a strong advocate for dental health. He has combined his passion around dental health with his missionary work. Throughout his dental career, Dr. Chi has gone out on nearly a dozen missionary trips to the Philippines, Mexico, and Bangladesh, to name a few.
Most recently, Dr Chi had an opportunity to go on a mission trip to Uganda and once again provide dental services to those in need. Many of the people seen by Dr Chi had to walk for hours just to get to the clinic. Dr Chi worked around the clock and offered to stay late to see everyone in need. However, due to lack of flash lights and electricity, many had to leave (before it got too dark to safely get home), and return again the next day during daylight hours.
Despite the long waits and return visits, everyone was extremely positive and grateful for their new smiles. They were quite happy to share them with us every chance they got.
Words can’t express how heartwarming it was to have this opportunity. For most of the people we met, it was the first time they had seen a dentist.
Dr Chi & Alki Family Dental are proud to share some moments from the Uganda Mission trip in this video.
Alki Family Dental would also like to extend our gratitude to our patients who helped support this trip by referring friends and family through our ‘Share a smile’ friends and family Referral Program. Each referral resulted in a donation of funds to the Uganda mission trip.
