Dr. Dater leaves for Ukraine on dental mission

Dr. Dater works with Ukraine children.

For the second consecutive year, Dr. Steven Dater, accompanied by his son Sam and daughter Stephanie, is traveling to the Ukraine with the Ukrainian Children’s Project. The Ukrainian Children’s project is a nonprofit organization that helps orphan children in Vinnitsa Oblast, Ukraine, which is about four hours south of Kiev, with all their most basic needs.

Dr. Dater said, “Last year we saw 180 children in six days of working. What is amazing about these kids is that they truly appreciate that you are there to help them. They are so neglected that they are grateful for any attention given to them.”

The office staff and his patients are very proud of his work and dedication to this project. This year Dr. Dater will be posting regular updates on the dater&cadorette Facebook site so friends back home can hear about his daily encounters.

“The satisfaction of seeing them smile even after having multiple extractions is fantastic. I am looking forward to seeing some of the same kids this year,” continued Dater. He joked that his wife is not allowed to go because he knows they would be returning with a new little girl for his family!
