Lenny Kravitz’s Let Love Rule Foundation & GLO Good Foundation Team Up to Bring Community Dental Services to Eleuthera, Bahamas
Nearly 500 People Treated Over Four Days in
Gregory Town, Eleuthera by GLO Good Professional Team from
New York City In Conjunction with Kravitz’s Foundation
October 31, 2016 — (NEW YORK, NY and ELEUTHERA, Bahamas) – Lenny Kravitz’s Let Love Rule Foundation and The GLO Good Foundation launched a marathon dental service mission in the community of Gregory Town, Eleuthera, Bahamas, providing oral health care, education and tools to adults and children in need in order to give the gift of a heathy smile.
Gregory Town, Eleuthera in the Bahamas is a place Lenny Kravitz has meaningful ties to; his mother’s family originated from the island and it is also now where the artist currently has a studio and longtime residence. With his deep roots and connection to the island’s history, Kravitz has a compassionate understanding for the on-going plight to have health services offered to the community’s residents.
Following a conversation with his NYC-based dentist Jonathan B Levine, DMD, in 2015 the pair decided to partner to launch an annual dental clinic in Gregory Town for its residents. Kravitz’s Let Love Rule Foundation aligned with Dr Levine’s revered GLO Good Foundation, a global charity serving those in need of oral health services founded by Dr. Levine and GLO Science co-founder Stacey Levine. Together with Dr. Levine’s dental team, they launched a small clinic on the island to deliver community health services and dental care in the fall of 2015. Jonathan and Stacey Levine joined Lenny and returned to Eleuthera on October 19 and expanded the clinic to include more than 45 people- dentists, endodontists, prosthodontists, assistants, hygienists, lab technicians and additional support staff. A total of nearly 500 people received services which included making and repairing dentures, fillings and restorations, root canals and extractions, cleanings, sealants and whitening. Additional services provided were monitoring blood pressure and vitals and dermatology screening
Said Lenny Kravitz, “It is of the utmost importance to me that the people in my community receive free first class health care. Moreover, it is even more of a priority that they receive the knowledge about their bodies and ultimately how to take care of them. Unfortunately, much of the food that is offered here on the island can lead to health problems. This, combined with poor education and lack of proper health care, shows me there is still a lot of work to do to change the situation. This is just the beginning.”
“Providing people access to world class oral care and empowering them with a healthy smile is our goal. The gift of the smile is an inalienable right Giving people the ability to eat and chew, alleviate pain, laugh, sing and smile with confidence, is what this is about. We smile when we are happy, to share our feelings, when we say hello and goodbye. Everyone deserves a healthy and confident smile, and our work Lenny Kravitz and Let Love Rule is allowing us to deliver that.” said Stacey Levine, co-founder of GLO Good.
Oral health care education is a large part of the mission of GLO Good, providing the important lifestyle habits to prevent dental disease from becoming life threatening. Kids recreational programs and activities on dental and medical education were provided throughout the duration of the clinic. People are encouraged to donate to GLO Good to enable the Foundation to continue to bring oral health services to underserved areas of the world by going to www.glogoodfoundation.org. The breakdown of donation amounts is outlined on the site and directly correlates to the exact number and type of services that are delivered.
“Access to quality oral health care is often a challenge, but when people come together in the spirit of giving back, delivery of those services to the community is not only possible, its efficient and extremely rewarding. Our core mission at Glo Good is to go wherever there is a need for services, and with partners like Let Love Rule and Lenny Kravitz, we will be able to leave healthy smiles wherever that mission takes us,” said Jonathan B. Levine, DMD, Co-Founder of Glo Good.
