Last Friday Eastern Shore Dental Care’s very own Dr. Murphy began the more-than-8000-mile journey to the Solomon Islands. This country is made up of a cluster of islands in the South Pacific and is home to a culturally diverse population of only 600,000 people.
For the next two-and-a-half weeks Dr. Murphy will be providing free and much-needed dental care to hundreds of locals who currently have limited access to modern healthcare services. We are so excited for their adventure and extremely proud to have these caring providers on our team!
As long-time patients probably know, Dr. Murphy has made this trip several times in the past. He already sent us back some amazing pictures of his arrival in nearby Australia. From Brisbane, Australia he has traveled another 2,000 miles by plane and several boat rides to reach the site of his “new” dental practice. We will keep you updated on his progress over the coming weeks and look forward to having him back in the office!
