Community Members on a Mission to Provide Care in Haiti and Honduras

Community members from northeastern Wisconsin are on a mission to provide care in both Haiti and Honduras in the coming months.  Up first, a mission trip to a remote region of central Haiti called Los Cacaos, February 15th through the 25th to provide free dental care.

Our own Dr. Paul Feit will join Dr. Scott Zak of Shore-line Legacy Dental (Manitowoc) and Dr. Chris Hansen of Two Rivers Family Dental along with many other missionaries in providing much needed dental care to the people of Los Cacaos, Haiti. This mission trip was organized by Dr. Hansen in conjunction with the Catholic Foundation for the Diocese of Green Bay, Sister Maria Marciano Projects.

This is both Dr. Hansen and Dr. Feit’s second trip to Los Cacaos.  During their inaugural visit in 2018  they, along with other Wisconsin missionaries, were able to finish setting up the dental clinic, stock it with over 650 pounds of donated supplies and provide much needed dental care to over 300 people. Preferred Dental Services of Denmark, WI, and Dental Health Products of New Frankin, WI, both generously donated dental equipment and materials to the project allowing missionaries to set up two operatories in Los Cacaos in 2018.  New this year will be the addition of two more dental chairs and a suction system to help aide them in providing care.  Missionaries will have 7 clinic days during which they will provide care. To support this mission, donations can be made to the Catholic Foundation for the Diocese of Green Bay, Sister Maria Marciano Projects.

A second mission trip is planned for March 16th through the 24th this time to Ahuas, Honduras. This trip will also focus on providing free dental care as well as food through the Infant Feeding Program to those in and around Ahuas. Organized by Rick Nelson (In-country Mission Coordinator), along with DBD’s Dr. Paul Feit and Clinical Director Katie Bennett there will be a total of 18 missionaries heading to Ahuas.  The dental team, which is comprised of nine dental professionals, will provide free care in the Ahuas dental clinic.  They will also take canoes or a tractor with trailer to neighboring villages to extend the reach of their service to areas that rarely have access to dental care.

The Infant Feeding program is also a focus of this trip. Nurse Practitioner Stacy Luedeman along with multiple registered nurses and other missionaries will prepare and deliver food to area families, paying special attention to infants. Thanks to the donations of many this mission trip is more than half way funded, but is still in need of approximately $12,500 to reach their goal.  Funds donated will go to help missionaries provide dental care, food and medicine to those in need.  If you would like to help support this mission with a monetary donation please send checks to:

 Sturgeon Bay Moravian Church
323 South Fifth Avenue
Sturgeon Bay, WI 54235-0266
*Please write Honduras Mission Trip in the memo section of your check.

Dr. Sledge recently purchased the Sister Bay practice from Dr. Paul Feit who had owned it since 2012.  The practice will continue to be named Dentistry by Design and the support staff that patients have come to know over the years will be staying on board with Dr. Sledge.

Dr. Sledge and his wife Cora would like to invite the community to an ‘Open House’ on Tuesday, September 25th from 5:30-7:00 p.m. at the Sister Bay practice located at 2645 Bay Shore Drive.  During this time visitors will be able to meet Dr. Sledge and his wife, who have made Sister Bay their home, peruse the facility and enjoy light hors d’oeuvres. 

“My wife and I are excited to set down roots and become a part of this great community!  We are looking forward to exploring the Peninsula more as full-time residents and enjoying the great restaurants, theaters and outdoor activities it has to offer.  We hope to forge long lasting relationships through the practice and also through our involvement in the community.” – Dr. Sledge.

Dr. Sledge hails from a small town in Southern Louisiana and graduated from Louisiana State University School of Dentistry.  In his 11 years of experience, he has worked in both public and private practice.  He most recently worked helping the underserved children of Green Bay while employed by the Oral Health Partnership.
