In 1982, Dr. Francis G. "Frank" Serio took a leap of faith, making a one-man mission trip to provide dental care in a remote region of the Dominican Republic. Today, that first small step has grown into a dental charity that has provided care to thousands of residents in poor rural areas of that country and beyond.
