Friends of Strong, Strong Memorial Hospital’s volunteer program, generously donated $1,396 to the Eastman Department of Dentistry (EDD).
“With those funds, we were able to purchase a second SAM 3 Articulator with Magnetic Plates,” says Lisa Sansone, senior operations administrator. “This equipment is crucial in the diagnostic preparation and surgical planning for patients undergoing orthognathic or facial reconstruction surgery.”
Given the success of the procedure, the demand for this surgery has significantly increased in the last year. Using this new equipment has had a positive affect on both EDD’s clinical and educational programs.
The Friends of Strong have continued to show their commitment to EDD over the past several years. This year’s support is deeply appreciated because it benefits EDD patients who are facing reconstructive surgery.
