It’s December which means that the holiday season is upon us. It’s impossible to escape all of the decorations in the malls, on the street and around various other locations, but there is so much more to the holidays then just decorations. To truly experience the holidays in the best way you need to adopt the spirit of giving. This time of year can be tough on some people, so being able to help out anyway you can will always be appreciated more than you’ll ever know.
A dentist in Jamaica is definitely feeling the holiday spirit and was able to share it with some deserving individuals. “Twenty-five students at the Lister Mair/Gilby High School for the Deaf received an early Christmas gift in the form of free dental care and a treat following a visit from dentist Christopher Ogunsalu and his team on Tuesday. According to Ogunsalu, who is the regent for the International College of Dentists for the English-speaking Caribbean, the institute annually tries to provide services for the public and decided to focus on people with disabilities this year. ‘The choice of the school was coincidental in that we actually met Carol Williams, who teaches at the school, to discuss it with her, and she said the teachers would love to come and use their health cards… but we [told them] we just wanted to treat the deaf students for free,’ the dentist said of the initiative.”
The best part about giving is that it doesn’t have to cost anything financially; you can give your time, lend a listening ear or offer your specialized dental services for the benefit of others.
