Folsom Dentist and Staff Provide Free Care to Nicaraguan Children

Folsom children’s dentist, Bryan Randolph, DDS, is committed to improving the smiles of children here at home and 3,000 miles away in Nicaragua.

The owner of busy dental practices in Folsom and Natomas, Dr. Randolph recently returned from providing free dental care to more than 100 patients at schools in Jinotepe and Managua. The trip has become an annual tradition for his office, his recent trip being his fourth to the area.
