`Look Ma, No Cavities'

BY DONNA LEE GOLDBERG

UJA Press Service

This is a story about building
bridges. Between individuals,
groups, communities. And teeth.
It's the story of people in Sderot,
a development town in Israel's
Negev who had little dental care,
and a group of American Jewish
dentists affiliated with Alpha
Omega, the Jewish dental frater-
nity, who had expertise,
enthusiasm and a month to offer.
The bridge — between them,
that is — was built by Project Re-
newal, a program supported by
the United Jewish Appeal/
Community Campaign, to im-
prove the quality of life in Israel's
impoverished neighborhoods.
Through the Alpha Omega
Dental Peace Corps, American
dentists volunteer their skills —
examining teeth and, where
necessary, filling, extracting and
performing root canal. An esti-
mated 32,000 appointments have
been held in this town of 10,000
people; some 2,100 children, ages
6 to 18, have participated in a
fluoride rinse program; and an
educational program to keep
teeth healthy has been added to
the school curriculum.
"The need for dental care in Is-
rael is enormous," said Dr. Rubin
D. Silvern of Scarsdale, N.Y.,
Alpha Omega's program chair-
man. "Dentistry is not readily
available. It's costly in major
cities and prohibitively high out-
side them. It was not available in

development towns until re-
cently."
Alpha Omega came to Sderot
five years ago after Dr. Sanford
Sheingold of Cincinnati, then the
association's president, suggested
such a program.
Project Renewal helped found
the clinic in Sderot where the
need was greatest. The Jews of
Sderot and the Jews of Buffalo,
Niagara Falls and Rochester,
N.Y. have had a close relationship
with one another since their
Jewish communities are "twin-
ned" in a special combination of
fund raising and personal contact
through Project Renewal.
"From the day the first dentists,
Dr. Harry Talcove of Los Angeles
and myself, arrived in August
1980, people came in large num-
bers seeking dental care'," Dr. Sil-
vern recalled.
Established by Project Renewal
through the Jewish Agency, the
major beneficiary of UJA-
Community Campaigns, the
clinic is a modern tree-chair office
for general dentistry staffed by
Alpha Omega dentists who are
aided by bilingual dental assis-
tants.
Good news travels fast. Alpha
Omega has also been asked to as-
sist at Kiryat Malachi, a de-
velopment town which is San
Diego's twinned community.
"Eighty dentists have volun-
teered in Sderot and 25 percent
