While Dr. Kaloti is heavily invested in his practice and his patients here in the greater Toronto area, part of him has always been drawn to making a difference in the lives of others who may not have the same dental health resources or opportunities as we do in Canada.
Through his travels, Dr. Kaloti began to realize the reality of the challenges that these people, especially the children, face every day having no access to proper dental care and oral health education. Through this harsh realization, the Kaloti Foundation was born.
With the Kaloti Foundation, Dr. Kaloti would begin to make a positive impact in the lives of these young children and families, one smile at a time. The fundamentals of oral health care are something everyone should have access to. No smile should be neglected.
After his Haiti mission, Dr. Kaloti wrote: Just got back from my week long trip in Haiti. It's true, the destruction is beyond compare. As soon as you step foot off the plane, you are ushered into a little make-shift corridor that replaces the old airport terminal that was completely rendered unsafe and for demolition by the earthquakes last year. The irony is that, at the end of that long and narrow corridor, you are greeted by a loud and cheerful musical trio with warm welcoming smiles, bright colors, drums and guitars... a true testament to the resilience and courage of the Haitian people! With 1.5 million people left homeless to date, there is much work yet to be done... but we tried to stay focused on our mission and improve the oral health for as many kids as possible. We came armed with 4 luggage bags full of dental kits, educational material, toys but it wasn’tenough.
This will surely be one of many missions to improve the oral health of children and adults who don’t have access to quality dental care or oral health education.
