Free Dental Clinic Update

Nearly 5 years ago I was given the wonderful opportunity to help poverty level adults in need of critical dental care. I had tried for years to help people with dental problems when they called me for assistance through my work with the Huntsville Madison County Dental Society. I was asked to be the Executive Director of a newly forming free dental clinic. It took a lot of work to set up the Clinic and to get it to where it is today. I had the help of many wonderful volunteer dentists. For me, it has been a challenge as well as a blessing.

I have met so many wonderful volunteers and patients and that makes it difficult to leave. It has been a real joy to work with all of the wonderful people that have made the Clinic a success. Being Executive Director was a real labor of love these last 5 years. However, my health situation (Parkinsons) has made it such that I cannot perform all of the duties needed in this job. I am not as mobile as I was several years ago and I am unable to keep up with the demands of being an Executive Director.

The new Clinic Executive Director is Julia Nabors. Julia is a Dental Hygienist with 16 years experience.  She had volunteered and helped me at the clinic for 6 months and I have a lot of confidence that she will do a wonderful job. I will continue to volunteer and help the clinic as much as possible.

Just so you know, I plan to continue my work as the Administrative Assistant of the Huntsville Madison County Dental Society. I have enjoyed working with the dentists of this county and wish to continue this effort.

Thank you,

Ginger
