Dr. Lubet and Associates
Serving the Madison community since 1984
Hemwall Foundation and it's international physicians provide the

pain, neck pain, fibromyalgia, sports injuries, unresolved whiplash
injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, chronic tendinitis, partially torn
tendons, ligaments and cartilage, degenerated or herniated discs, TMJ
the spring of 2005, Dr. Dana Lubet embarked on an adventure rooting
the beginning of the dental branch of the Hackett Hemwall Foundation
Dr. Lubet was the original and only dentist working to serve the
people of Honduras in the city of Olanchito. All supplies, dental
equipment and financial resources were donated by Dr. Lubet.
Lubet and Susan SK spent the summer of 2010 formatting a video and
hands-on presentation, brochure and instruction. This included dental
sealants, fluoridation of public water and home care/toothbrushing
In October 2010, Dr. Lubet, Susan SK, Dr. Andrea Sadjaa and Mary Doherty (co-facilitator of Hackett Hemwall) ventured to the city of La Ceiba where they were greeted by Miguel Montoya and 20 “public health” dentists from Honduras. After a half day presentation by Dr. Lubet, Susan SK and Dr. Sadjaa the dentists gathered into groups to begin service to the school communities in and around La Ceiba. During the next 4 days, over 800 children were seen and treated with sealants, fluoride and toothbrush instruction at no charge. This was all possible by donations from suppliers and personal funding of Dr. Lubet. The success of the fall project was overwhelming. The CHAVO Project was asked to return in March of 2011 to keep the door open and shift the paradigm from restorative to prevention for the dental health of current and future generation children.
Upon our team's return in March of 2011, Susan SK and Valentina Tokareva-George (dental assistant) worked diligently and side by side with the same 20 Public Health Ministry dentists (Many of these dentists who had not been paid a salary by the government in months. Even though the public health workers were officially on strike, these dedicated individuals joined the CHAVO project on behalf of the children of Honduras.) traveled to remote villages, rural and inner city schools. In a one week span they were able to serve over 3,000 children. Dr. Lubet was working with Miguel Montoya with water purification plant directors in La Ceiba and Tegucigalpa . Dr. Lubet was educating Public Officials with the how and why of adding the fluoride to the public water.
Montoya and Dr. Lubet continued on their path of success when they
met with the director of the Honduran Dental School, the President of the Congress (Juan Orlando Hernandez) and First Lady of
Honduras (Rosa Elena de Lobo). During these meetings the dental
school promised 40 dental students to be trained in a public dental
outreach program fashioned after the CHAVO Project. Rosa Elena de
Lobo also granted funding to Miguel Montoya to setup a permanent
clinic in the C.R.I.L.A. Rehabilitation Clinic for children and adults
with special needs.
Currently the Honduran government supports the CHAVO Project ONLY with manpower of governmental dentists and students. They have NOT as of yet, granted any financial support or funding for the supplies and materials to provide the hands on level of dental prevention throughout the schools or any part of the country. That is why we still seek your support and generous gifts to keep the CHAVO dream alive.
