Kelowna dentists, Dr. Visscher and Dr. Matson, shared a passion to provide dental care in under served areas has taken them internationally. Combined, their travels have encompassed numerous places in South and Central America, Kiribati, Haiti, Mexico, India, Guam and Russia.
Their travels take them to remote villages to provide the children and adults relief from dental pain. Many of the villages have never been visited before by a dentist. These trips are a reminder of how small our world is yet how great the need for health care there is.
The past several years Drs. Visscher and Matson have worked with the non profit group, New Reality International, NRI has recently been incorporated with non-profit status in Canada and Jonathan Visscher is the founding president of the Canadian branch.
