Folsom Dentist and Staff Provide Free Care to Nicaraguan Children

Folsom Dentist and Staff Provide Free Care to Nicaraguan Children

Folsom children’s dentist, Bryan Randolph, DDS, is committed to improving the smiles of children here at home and 3,000 miles away in Nicaragua.

The owner of busy dental practices in Folsom and Natomas, Dr. Randolph recently returned from providing free dental care to more than 100 patients at schools in Jinotepe and Managua. The trip has become an annual tradition for his office, his recent trip being his fourth to the area.

“We believe in treating every child as if they were our own,” says Dr. Randolph whose son, Christian, and wife, Martina Randolph, MD, a Folsom physician, often accompany him on his travels. “Nicaragua is stricken with poverty and it means the world to us to provide basic care including teeth cleaning, filling cavities, taking x-rays and applying sealants to both new and familiar patients.”
