Texas Dental Association Members Help Those in Need From the Office of Wayne Babin, DDS

As a member of the Texas Dental Association, Wayne Babin, DDS, is part of an organization that serves dentists, the general public, and those who lack access to regular dental care. Through its Give Kids a Smile program, members furnish dental treatment and education to children across the United States. Another outreach effort, Texas Donated Dental Services, offers dentistry to those with disabilities and the elderly. Since its start in 2001, the program has provided $6.9 million in dental services to 2,440 Texas residents.

The association’s members have also provided aid following natural catastrophes. In 2010, in the wake of the magnitude 7.0 earthquake that devastated much of Haiti, one member flew to the country and manned a triage tent that provided relief to an estimated 900 locals.

Family dentist Dr. Wayne Babin, the former President of the Smith County Dental Society, has donated his dental services at clinics in Smith County.
