Giving Back in Ways
That Make a Difference
At Hanover Road Dental health, our dentists and team members love playing a larger role in the community! When we are not helping others achieve a brighter and healthier smile, we’re working with the organizations in our neighborhood! If there’s an organization or effort you think we should know about, let us know!
Follow Our Toothbrushes!
Our office has donated toothbrushes to multiple causes. Our latest was a medical mission trip to San Cristobal Guatemala. On this trip there were 40 missionaries ages 18 to 84. They were hosted in the town of San Cristobel and visited 4 Mayan villages. One of the villages was not accessible by vehicle so the team had to hike in. We examined and treated 2000 villagers and each one received tooth paste and brushes and instructions in their use. They have a Dentist on their team and her assistant and together they extracted 400 painful teeth, bringing long awaited relief to those suffering and under less then optimal conditions.
The Mexican Project
Through generous donations, the Mexican project was able to purchase and donate wheelchairs to the Oaxaca Street children Grassroots. The wheelchairs were purchased in Oaxaca, Mexico.

Medical Mission Project
A little while back, we had a patient who works up at Dartmouth Hitchcock; decide to travel to Mexico for a vacation full of hiking throughout the country. During his journey, he stumbled upon a small Mexican village. Intrigued, he ventured into town and began speaking with the locals and learning all about it. What he learned, was that this village was very poor, with no medical help, and very little power. He decided he wanted to help. The first step was meeting with a doctor and finding out what they needed most. Turns out what they needed most, was an ambulance to transport patients to the hospital. With the help of Dartmouth, and other volunteers, he was able to get them the ambulance they needed, along with other money donations. They were also able to get some other secondhand things for the town. Now, John takes volunteers each year to help in any way possible. From bunk beds, to an ambulance, to solar ovens; our local upper valley neighbors have made huge changes in the lives of the people of Hildago and surrounding areas. Here are pictures of the people who live in this village, and some of the volunteer work put toward strengthening this village.
Some of our other favorite organizations include:
- Upper Valley Haven
- Lebanon Project Graduation
- Mascoma Project Graduation?
- Norwich Woman’s Club (contributes to student scholarships and other Upper Valley Projects)
