Tahira Begum Dental Clinic


Dental 1 After 18 months of efforts, the Al-Shifa Clinic secured the dental equipment for the clinic, which was opened in August 2010. We are thankful to Ms. Margarret Irwin RN.MS. for her tireless efforts in contacting several places to obtain the equipment. We are extremely thankful to Dr. Roach, a retired
dentist of Fort Worth, who was kind enough to donate the equipment for the clinic. He also helped us in setting up the clinic and developing  policies, procedures and operating guidelines. At present Dr. Roach and another dentist, Dr.Saad  are helping at the clinic. The dental clinic provides dental exams, including  x-rays, cleanings, fillings, and extractions. Dr. Jayesha Hussain has recently accepted to become volunteer co-director of dental clinic.
