Paying it Forward Through Community Outreach in Papillon, NE
Dr. Afolabi Ogunleye is passionate about giving back to the warm and friendly community he has called home since moving from the Big Apple to accept a full-time faculty position at Creighton University School of Dentistry. “Dr. O,” as he’s known to his patients, loves helping people, and feels privileged to so do every day at Premier Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery. Dr. Ogunleye and the entire dental team at his private practice believe in paying it forward and are proud to participate in dental-related community service in Papillon, NE. In addition to supporting a local and state organizations, the team provides ongoing support to a select number of national and international organizations with worthy missions. Some of the organizations we support are:
Nebraska Mission of Mercy Outreach
Since its launch in 2005, Nebraska Mission of Mercy has helped more than 15,000 people receive free dental care, valued at over $6 million. On national level, Mission of Mercy dental programs have provided 100,000 patients with nearly $50 million in free dental services and treatment since 2000. The program is open to individuals who are uninsured, underinsured, or anyone who has difficulty accessing dental care for any other reason. Children and adults who don’t have a compromising medical condition that would prohibit them from receiving care are seen on a first-come, first-serve basis, regardless of financial need.
Nebraska Donated Dental Services
The Donated Dental Services (DDS) is the flagship program of the Dental Lifeline Network. DDS operates through a volunteer network of more than 15,000 dentists and 3,700 dental labs across the U.S. Since it was founded in Colorado in 1985, DDS has provided $330 million in dental treatment to 117,000 vulnerable people, thanks to the generosity of dentists and labs who volunteer their time, services and materials. To qualify, applicants must lack adequate income to pay for dental care and have a permanent disability, be age 65 or older, or have a condition that makes them medically fragile.
