From 2006 to 2012 Dr. Syrop was asked by the Dean of the dental school at Columbia University to lead a program to bring dental care to remote rural areas of Africa. Dr. Syrop went to Ethiopia, Tanzania and Burundi and organized trips to Rwanda, Senegal and Kenya. Access to medical and dental care in these locations is extremely limited or non-existent. It is a challenging task to develop a program to train healthcare workers to deliver rudimentary oral healthcare in remote poverty stricken areas.
Dr. Syrop is a member of Donated Dental Services (DDS) an organization that enlists dentists to provide free dental care to poor and disabled people.
