Member Spotlight: Dr James Tennant - Volunteer Work

NWT-NU Dental Association member and local Hay River dentist Dr. James Tennant (Jim) has been recognised in the Chronicle Honors for over 30 years of volunteer dentistry work in St. Lucia. Jim has been travelling to St. Lucia for 1-2 months per year since 1981, and providing valuable dentistry work to residents who would otherwise not have access to care. The clinic there survives through donated time, money and equipment and has overcome challenges such as a fire in 2009 that destroyed the facility. Read more about it here.
