She has served in mis- sion trips in Africa and Latin America. Dr. Felix is now the Clinical Director at the Good Shepherd Dental Care, located at The Providence Rescue Mission, where she has served for the past 10 years. The mission is a faith-based, 100% privately funded non-profit organization that has been offering free dental care to the poor for the past 15 years. The mission serves people who are trying to move on from homelessness, unemployment and drug addiction into a fully restored, independent life by providing free restorative dental care.
