Mount Horeb, WI (PRWEB) March 07, 2018
Dr. Angela Cotey, respected dentist in Mount Horeb, WI, recently participated in a mission trip to the Philippines with the Taytay Association of America (TAA). The mission trip supports the 290,000 residents of Taytay, Rizal, including infants and children who do not have access to proper medical care. Dr. Cotey performed a variety of dental procedures including numerous tooth extractions.
The TAA’s mission is to serve residents of Taytay, Rizal who cannot afford basic living and medical care. Since 2006, the organization raises funds and sends volunteers from both the U.S. and the Philippines for a three-day medical and dental fair. Since the inception of the mission, the TAA has served over 8,000 patients and performed hundreds of tooth extractions with the help of Dr. Cotey.
When a tooth is damaged beyond repair or infected by disease, it may need to be extracted in order to save the patient’s oral health. Damaged or infected teeth can cause pain or discomfort during everyday use. Additionally, if the tooth is infected, a painful abscess may form, which can spread disease to other teeth or even other parts of the body.
In addition to the Taytay Association of America, Dr. Cotey participates in many other organizations as a way to give back to the community. She is also a part of the Give Kids a Smile Program and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Dane County, as well as other dental mission trips globally. At her practice, Village Smile Care, Dr. Cotey offers numerous dental services, including dental implants, orthodontics and gum recession treatment. Her office features some of the latest technology in dentistry to provide patients with quality, predictable care.
