Dr. Art Missirlian is an Alabama dentist who began volunteering at the DVI dental clinic in 2004.  He recently returned for his seventh time!  During his week at DVI, he had the opportunity to treat a young  man, Elazar, now 22 years old, who has been receiving free dental care at the clinic since the age of seven.  Lucky sevens?  Perhaps!

The truth is, that in order to provide such important care to those most in need, we need more than luck.  We need your support.  Thanks to our donors, corporate sponsors, and volunteer dentists like Dr. Missirlian, DVI was able to provide 10,798 treatments to 2,700 children and young adults in 2017 alone.  That’s more than luck, that’s LOVE!
