Providing Smiles

During this holiday season we are aware of the giving nature of people in the community. One such person is Dr. Renju Thackenkary of Opal Ridge Dental, 1700 Kingfisher Drive. An officer in the U.S. Army Reserves, he provides dental services to fellow soldiers in clinics at bases around the country. Locally, if there’s a backlog of patients to see a dentist at Fort Detrick, Thackenkary takes care of their needs. While he was in school he elected to treat victims of torture from various countries and has participated in outreaches including Mission of Mercy and the Give Kids a Smile Program.
