How Dr. Julio Gives Back

December 2019:

Dr. Julio along with Angels for Humanity brought joy once again to over 300 children from the community of Little Haiti and the surrounding areas at their annual Breakfast with Santa event in Miami. The children enjoyed games, face painting, balloon animals, and a hot breakfast. Additionally, each child received a wrapped toy given to them by Santa Claus and his little elves. Angels for Humanity is a nonprofit organization that provides health and education to impoverished children. This year, the organization also distributed toys to children at Joe DiMaggio Hospital, and 300 children displaced from Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas. Dr. Julio with kidsKids with Santa Clause

Every year, Biscayne Dental & Facial Aesthetics enjoys giving back during the holidays. For a few months now, Dr. Julio and his team have been hard at work wrapping toys for tots in preparation. Although many toys will be distributed locally to underprivileged children here in Miami, Dr. Julio wanted to extend the efforts to children in the Bahamas.

Hurricane Dorian hit the Bahamas hard in early September 2019. Families were devastated, and relocated to Freeport to establish essentially a “tent city” where they currently reside. Dr. Julio coordinated with one of his dear friends to transport the toys and volunteers to the Bahamas. On December 7th, 2019 Dr. Julio along with 5 volunteers from Angels for Humanity flew over to deliver toys to over 300 children, and spread the joy of giving to those in need.

September 2019:

The idea of a Free Dental Day started a few months ago where I was looking to do something through my office to give back to the community. I pitched my idea to Big Brothers and Big Sisters. I wanted to offer kids free cleanings and identify 1 or 2 kids with the greatest need for braces and gift them a free orthodontic treatment. Of course, they LOVED the idea.
On Friday, August 16, we hosted a dental day with children from the big brothers, big sisters’ program. I put together my entire team and recruited 3 additional volunteer hygienists to help that day. We also received generous donations of dental products from Ultradent and Henry Schein. There were hundreds of dollars’ worth of dental supplies donated from these companies that allowed us to help treat all the kids we saw.

We gave these kids ages 5-12, free dental cleanings, fluoride treatments and sealants. The kids were amazing and cooperative, and the parents were all very grateful for the treatment they received. Every child left that day with a gift bag with toothbrush and toothpaste and the volunteer hygienists showed them how to brush properly. There were 2 lucky winners from all the kids we saw. I identified the 2 kids with the most need and gifted them a free orthodontic treatment. The mothers of these 2 children were elated when they realized that their children would receive a smile to last a lifetime


Dr. Julio has been recognized for his outstanding contributions to child welfare. He earned a Distinguished Humanitarian Award from the Angels for Humanity Organization for his involvement helping Haitian children with free dental services.


December 2018:

Dr. Julio took two separate trips to Haiti, where he joined the Renand Foundation and the Angels for Humanity Organization on their separate dental mission trips. While there, Dr. Hernandez and his team of 4 dentists and 3 hygienists provided free dental services, including everything from cleanings to extractions, to more than 300 children aged 5 to 15. He also provided supplies, including toothbrushes, toothpaste, and equipment he carried from Miami for his trip. For many in this area, it was the first time they had ever seen a dentist.
