Helping those in need has always been a goal and a strong passion of Dr. Nowysz's. Dr. Nowysz's daughter was a teacher in Guatemala about 10 years ago, so Dr. Nowysz visited her a lot. She decided to contact several public dental clinics to provide free dental services while she was there. She has worked in various clinics over the past several years throughout Guatemala. While her daughter was living there, she met her now husband, and they have since moved back to Iowa and have two children so they still have strong ties to the country.
They not only love to visit family, but Dr. Nowysz also takes the opportunity to continue providing her services to those in need in Guatemala. This last 4th of July week, Dr. Nowysz and her assistant Chelsey had the chance to work at a clinic that was created by an association called Houses to Homes.
They saw adults and children in the town of Las Pastores, which is well known for their
hand-made boots, and is about a 20 minute drive from Antiqua. They did a lot of fillings, extractions and cleanings to help those less fortunate. The people they helped otherwise may not be able to receive dental care, or have never received any type of dental care before. Everyone was very appreciative of Dr. Nowysz & Chelsey's work, and Dr. Nowysz was invited to come back anytime. Plans to bring Classic Smiles to Guatemala again are already in the works!
