As a cosmetic dentist in New Jersey, Dr. Peter Ciampi has dedicated his expertise to the dental needs of his Spring Lake community for more than 21 years. However, he recently traveled to Anderson County, TN with the Remote Area Medical (RAM) organization with over 400 volunteers—30-40 of which were dentists—to provide much needed dental and medical care to underserved residents in the area.
Remote Area Medical was created by Mr. Stan Brock, formerly of the Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom. After serving the needs of residents in remote areas throughout the international community, he turned his attention to those in need on the national level. For more information about RAM, visit ram.org.
Over the course of two days, RAM treated approximately 900 patients, providing services such as routine cleanings, fillings, and extractions. While the days were long and exhausting, Dr, Ciampi says he and his colleagues were happy to serve those in need. He adds that he looks forward to the next mission, as he plans to participate one to two times each year.
