Tami, an 18-year-old from a poor family in Jerusalem, suffered extreme trauma to her gums from orthodontic work she had received. Dr. Ed Jutkowski, a regular volunteer and a Periodontic specialist, took on her case and restored her oral health. After her treatment, Tami came into the clinic with a painting she made herself, dedicated to the DVI clinic and staff.


Her note reads:

“To the DVI family, to Dr. Roy, Ziva, the dental assistants, and all the dentists, I want to say THANK YOU. Thank you so much for treating me so devotedly, for not neglecting me; you advised, you supported me with every issue I had. Thank you for the treatment and the help that you’ve given my family, and all the other families like mine. DVI is a special place, warm and loving, that treats with dedication and never neglects a single patient. You treat everyone in the best way for them. In my eyes and in the eyes of many others, you are doing holy work with all your soul.
Thank you so much, Tami”
