Kiwanis of Minneola Terrific Teeth Program
Dr. Ronald Achong of Oral-Facial Surgical Arts created the ‘Terrific Teeth’ program to provide oral health care for underprivileged children at no cost. Children candidates are selected by the Lake County school administration based on the child’s particular dental needs. The past year has been a remarkable success for this program, as many children’s lives have been changed by the care and treatment provided by these kind and conscientious doctors. As Dr. Achong states, “It is extremely rewarding to give back to the Lake County community. There is nothing more satisfying than helping children with dental needs. The new smiles and improvement in their health is heartwarming”.
The Kiwanis of Minneola has hosted their annual golf tourament every year from 2009 to 2011. Proceeds from this event supported the kids in the surrounding Clermont area.
