Our hygiene clinic came to be when we received boxes of instruments and supplies after Dr. Brem’s retirement in Arlington, Texas. Magic Beans’ founder, April Cooper, worked in the dental field for 10 years with Dr. Brem at the time of his retirement. He was generous enough to donate dozens of hygiene instrument packs for our clinic as well as a portable hygiene polisher & paste, infection control barriers, gloves, sterilization supplies & much more. We have received donations from Dr. Daniel Ferraro, Dr. James Wright, & dental assistant Jeannie Grigsby, as well as friends collecting toothbrushes for distribution at the clinic.
This clinic has started small and basic. We tote our supplies from place to place, setting up make-shift operatories, to meet the needs of the children. Our hope is that we’ll be able to take more dental professionals with us on future trips and make this a service we can always offer, with more extensive procedures.
