North Country Dental gives the gift of a new smile to disfigured children through Operation Smile

Gorham – North Country Dental gave new smiles for Christmas to children suffering from cleft palate and other facial deformities.The NCD staff donated $250 to Operation Smile instead of swapping gifts at the office this past year. The donation was matched by "Operation Smile" to cover two surgeries.

Operation Smile is a worldwide children's medical charity whose network of global volunteers are dedicated to helping improve the health and lives of children and young adults. It is headquartered in Norfolk, Virginia. Since its founding, Operation Smile volunteers have treated more than 130,000 children born with cleft lips, cleft palates and other facial deformities and has a presence in 51 countries. In addition to providing free medical treatment, Operation Smile trains local medical professionals in its partner countries and leaves behind crucial equipment to lay the groundwork for long-term self-sufficiency and continuing service to those in need.

The hygienists, assistants, doctors, and office staff of NCD are no strangers to giving their time and considerable energy to making the world a better place, starting at home in New Hampshire's North Country. Enthusiastic participants in both local and world community events, they consistently provide donations each year to benefit a variety of worthwhile causes, such as The American Cancer Society's Relay for Life event and, most recently, a fashion show featuring cancer survivors as models and guest speakers.

Dr. Paul Schoenbeck, founder of North Country Dental (NCD), is dedicated to serving the local community's children and devotes both his and his dentists' time and expertise each year, providing free dental care to underserved children through the American Dental Association's "Give Kids a Smile" program. A tireless champion of children's oral health, Dr. Schoenbeck is a participating member of the Androscoggin Valley Hospital Medical Staff. He is also a sustaining member of the prestigious American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry; the American Dental Association; the American Association of Hospital Dentists; and the Academy of Comprehensive Esthetics (ACE).

In addition to his busy practice, Dr. Schoenbeck is a professional speaker and educator. He has given presentations and lectures to dentists from Maine to Florida and is a recurring guest speaker at major dental conferences such as the Yankee Dental Congress held in Boston, Massachusetts. Dr. Schoenbeck has also authored several articles featured in Contemporary Esthetics Magazine, Dentistry Today, and Dental Practice Report. He is a leading expert and proponent of CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) and recognized by CEREC's manufacturer, Sirona, for his efforts to advance modern dentistry and make this rare, high-tech dentistry available to local communities.
