Just four days before the kickoff performance of their nation-wide tour, eight Ugandan performers from the world-renowned troupe, Children of Uganda, were in a Nevada City dental office getting fillings and root canals.

Three Nevada County dentists spent four hours Tuesday morning doing free dental work for the musicians, singers, and dancers who make up just a fraction of the musical group. The young Ugandans hail from an orphanage outside Kampala and are known throughout the world for their music and dance.

The work was done by dentists Robert Giuliani and Jean and Craig Creasey in the Creasey’s office on South Pine Street, said Don Fultz, president of the Nevada City Rotary Club and organizer of the meeting.

Nevada County Rotary clubs have long had unique ties with the sub-Saharan country. In June 2005, the Creaseys traveled to Uganda as part of a Rotarian-sponsored dental mission to visit the local medical missionary couple, Scott and Carol Kellermann.
