Four local medical professionals join nonprofit trip

Life-changing work, for both dentists and patients.

Two Traverse City dentists, Steven Niergarth and Jason Merrithew, joined a medical mission trip by HELPS International, a nonprofit organization that since 1987 has sent 155 medical teams to help indigenous people in Latin America.

From Feb. 12-22, Niergarth and Merrithew headed to Guatemala with a team of other volunteer medical professionals — including two registered dental hygienists from their Deerhaven Family Dentistry practice, Robinette Patterson and Bridget Forton, as well as retired nurse from Traverse City, Ann Conway.
