March 2014
Dr. Orlando returned to Haiti for a full week of dental missions in Port au Prince at the Three Angels School and Orphanage. This time, his wife Tammy, his oldest daughter Madeline and 13 other youth and adults from Woodstock Baptist Church came with him.  While Dr. Orlando performed dental services, the rest of the mission team worked painting the guest house, assisting the students at the school, working on the Three Angels farm, and helping with the orphans.

First Town Dental now offers Nitrous Oxide Conscious Sedation. In November 2013, Dr. Wishart attended the University of Toronto for Nitrous Oxide training. We purchased a top of the line delivery unit in December and he started providing this service to our patients in January. Dr. Orlando took the same course in April 2014.  With both dentists offering Nitrous Oxide, patients who are nervous or anxious have the opportunity to be treated in a comfortable relaxed manner.


December 2013
First Town Dental was pleased to help out Big Brothers/Big Sisters again this year by donating and decorating a Christmas Tree for their Festival of Trees Fund Raiser..  In the process, we took the prize for Best Overall Tree!  Thanks to Pam, Tammy, Katelynn and Heidi for their hard work.


April 2013
On April 8th, 2013, Dr. Orlando represented the New Brunswick Dental Society at Southern Carleton Elementary School to promote Oral Health Month with Premier David Alward. Mr. Alward read a story to the Grade One students about the importance of proper brushing. The Premier then acted as a dental patient as Dr. Orlando showed the kids what happens when they visit the dentist. The NBDS provided toothbrushes for all the students.


Dec 2012
First Town Dental participated for the second year in a row in the annual
Carleton York Big Brothers Big Sisters Festival of Trees with its entry “Sweet Tooth” taking first place in the Corporate Theme category.


Nov 2012
Dr. Orlando had the privilege to travel to Port au Prince, Haiti in November where he provided dental services to children, teachers and people in the community surrounding the
Three Angels Children’s Relief school and orphanage.  Using a portable dental unit, he was able to provide restorative and preventive care (fillings and cleanings) to patients as well as extractions. When Dr. Orlando arrived in Haiti, he was reunited with donated equipment from his old office which was shipped to Haiti by Woodstock’s Tim Gray of Gray’s Aqua Farm. Tim also shipped down 2 dental chairs and other equipment generously donated by Dr. Peter Caverhill before he retired. These chairs were greatly appreciated for providing dental care to this underserviced population. Dr. Orlando hopes to return in 2013 and bring some of his staff so that more people can be seen.
