The Tigard, OR based Greg Williams DMD, uses his passion for humanitarian work to help those in need.

Greg Williams has announced the dates for his next annual expedition will be to Ecuador for the Wide Open Humanitarian Trip.

Wide Open Humanitarian, Inc, was formed in 2007 after Drs. Gregory A. Williams and Scott R. Dyer had traveled to Peru on a humanitarian dental expedition. They realized that there are many people who have such limited access to dentistry that they must sometimes suffer in pain for year – many times never receiving treatment for their problems.

Since 2007, Drs. Williams and Dyer have led 6 exploratory expeditions and 5 dental teams to the remote areas of Samoa, Guatemala, India Peru and Honduras.

"We want to go where no (dental teams) have gone before and where the need is the greatest," says Dr. Greg Williams.
Each year the Dentist travels to developing countries to help those in need.

Williams has been doing annual dental missions for the past several years to some of the most remote places in the world.
