NYU dentists drop in on Kasigluk

Dentists from the New York University College of Dentistry descended on the tundra Village of Kasigluk last week to implement a pilot project aimed at overcoming a dental health epidemic. The College has a long history of similar volunteer projects in third world countries, but they decided to lend a hand in rural Alaska in the wake of the American Dental Association’s lawsuit against the Dental Therapist Program.
