They help give kids a terrific smile, and that's reward enough for volunteer dentists, dental specialists and hygienists at the Children's Dental Clinic at Desert Mission, John C. Lincoln Health Network's community service arm.

For example, for the last six months, Arnold Morof, an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, has volunteered to remove wisdom teeth for underserved teens and young adults up to age 21.

"Once or twice a month, he spends an entire day at the Children's Dental Clinic," said the clinic's director, Ju Lawrence, DMD. "Our patients so appreciate what he's doing. And Chad Foster, DDS, an orthodontist, provides such orthodontic services as expanders and other appliances."
