Great day at the ADA, Mission of Mercy (MOM)! Here I am with one of my patients, to whom we were able to do a much-needed root canal in his front tooth, as well as bleach a very discolored central. Needless to say, he was thrilled, as the bleaching was just the "icing on the cake." He insisted on a selfie for his wife. With us is Rosemary, who assisted me for the day.  She is a 3rd-year dental student at Howard University. It was a great team effort... This is when I feel so happy to be a dentist and an endodontist... It is all about the twinkle in their eyes and the great smile when treatment is done! Thanks Pete for the pictures!

A Tribute

Dr. Angela P. Noguera has been a dedicated volunteer for the Spanish Catholic Center dental clinic since 1989. She has performed hundreds of perfect root canal treatments for our patients in that time. She has a dedicated interest and concern for each low income, uninsured immigrant who passes through her dental office and follows-up to make sure that their care continues. Dr. Noguera is a role model for all those she meets and treats by her professionalism and kind, gentle manner. As a friend of the Spanish Catholic Center, she always been supportive of our activities and has served on Committees and Boards, the most current being the Latino Advisory Committee of the Catholic Charities Board of Directors. We are grateful for our long relationship with Dr. Noguera and pray that God will grant every blessing to her, her family, and her practice for many years to come.

Fondly,

Sister Janice Heisey, IHM
