Hand In Hand receives a generous grant from The Alan K. & Isabelle DerKazarian Foundation

A new Dental Center will be named in memory of Dr. Alan K. DerKazarian who graduated from the Tufts University School of Dental Medicine Class of 1957 and, after two years as a dentist in the Air Force, completed his periodontics study at Boston University’s Goldman School of Dental Medicine. He taught in the Department of Periodontics at the BU School of Dentistry for over 20 years and established a practice limited to periodontics in Cambridge in 1963. During his career, he served as President and Treasurer of the Armenian-American Dental Association, President of the Massachusetts Dental Society, and Chair the Massachusetts Dental Society Foundation.

Hand in Hand’s new dental center will include training facilities to provide professional development for dental professionals continuing Dr. DerKazarian’s legacy.

Hand in Hand’s vision is for all the children and people of Artsakh to have strong oral health that will save them pain, money, poor health and set them up for confidence and well-being throughout their life.

All services provided by hand in hand are made possible by the generous support of donors making them absolutely free to the people of Artsakh. Consider visiting our website, to contribute to this important mission.
