THANK

Dr. Bassett has been treating the homeless since CASS

Dental Clinic opened its doors on January 1. 2001. Dr.

Bassett focuses on homeless women who have been

victims of domestic violence. Dr. Bassett is also adjunct

faculty at the Arizona School of Dentistry and Oral

Health. When she works on the homeless patients, she

also instructs the dental students. The homeless

patients get world class “Smiles by Joyce” and the

dental students get an education that only a practitioner

at Joyce’s level could provide.

Soliciting donated equipment l.jpg

    a. Competition (Pelton and Kavo) b. Showroom for comparison c. Exclusive Equip., Cabinets, IT, instruments. ( Thank You Celebration Picture)
