Thailand Mission Trips
Dr. Savukinas works with Smiles on Wings, a non-profit humanitarian organization focused on providing dental and medical care to underprivileged populations. These villages are at least a day’s walk or boat trip from any medical or dental facility. The goal was not only to offer care, but to encourage self-reliance and healthy habits. He has been traveling to Thailand since 2008 to offer his services and share his expertise. There, he conducted emergent treatments and preventative care, and educated the local population about dental hygiene and maintenance.
Subsequent missions monitor and continue the efforts of the original mission. Scholarships and education programs give underprivileged youth the ability to achieve their dreams of becoming health care professionals.
Dr. Savukinas will be heading back to Thailand for another mission trip in January of 2016.
Smiles on Wings aims to assist underserved communities through providing services, equipment, education, and training.
Baltimore Rotary Club
Dr. Savukinas also works with the Rotary Club of Baltimore to improve the oral health of those in our local community. These events help spread awareness about dental health and also allow Dr. Savukinas to perform vital dental procedures for the most needy in our area.
