Providing Dental Care Around the World

Global Village Ministries

Dr. Beckermeyer works in Kenya with Global Village Ministries to provide dental care. Outside of Kenya’s urban areas, dental hygiene is not readily available. In fact, according to former District Governor Geeta Manek, in Kenyan culture “It’s OK if your teeth fall out or if your teeth are broken. They think people are not going to die from it.” Dr. Beckermeyer has gone to Kenya every year since 2008, and continues to go there each October.

United Hands, Inc.

By working with United Hands, Inc., a non-profit organization established in 1995, Dr. Beckermeyer helps provide high-quality, free dental services to countries around the world. He has traveled to places like Honduras, offering dental care to those who don’t have access to it. United Hands, Inc. soon realized that these services were also needed in the United States, so they formed the FreeD.O.M. Clinic USA, offering dental, optical and medical assistance to uninsured, indigent Americans and those who have been affected by natural disasters.
