Dentist provides care to the people of Ghana

LAREDO,Texas(KGNS)- A local dentist delivers much needed dental care to children and families in Ghana, West Africa.

Kool Smiles dentist Dr. Abrefi Asare recently returned from a mission trip in the Accra and Kumasi regions of Ghana.

Dr. Asare and a team of dentists from Kool Smiles and clinical staff spent a week providing dental care to nearly 200 children and adults.

The team spent days doing restorative dental work and educating children and adults about the importance of oral hygiene.

The trip was extra special for Asare since she's was born in Ghana.

She says being able to serve her native land and community was an honor and privilege.

Dr. Asare says she's grateful to her company Kool Smiles and their partners 'Touch A Life' for allowing her the chance to give back.
