Dr.Scott Dubowsky just returned from volunteering for his 5th visit to Israel to treat indigent children at the DVI Clinic in Jerusalem. The DVI clinic, founded by Holocaust survivor Trudi Birger, is the only non-sectarian, free dental clinic in the Middle East. Dr. Dubowsky was able to treat many children during his stay in the up to date facility that is entirely maintained through generous donations. Oral disease is a major problem for these underprivileged children because of poor diets and poor oral hygiene. The children receive comprehensive care at DVI.
In the past, Dr. Dubowsky has received the prestigious International Service Award from the American Dental Association for his work with these children.
