Dr. Aunon had owned a private dentistry practice in Centreville Virginia for more than 25 years, but after numerous heart to heart discussions, in December 2020 he sold his dental practice. He and his family decided to start a new chapter of their lives and relocated to Cornelius, North Carolina. Shortly thereafter, he purchased the Cornelius Dentistry office and became a member of the Mecklenberg dental community.
Dr. Aunon assisted the Shoulder to Shoulder organization with a Medical/ Dental mission trip to Pinares, Honduras. Pinares was chosen as the site which we will adopt because it is one of the poorest areas in Central America.
During the week long trip over 110 people were treated dentally, which mainly consisted of multiple teeth being removed. Poor nutrition along with sodas and lollipops is the root cause of their poor dental health.
Dr. Aunon has also gone on medical dental mission trips to Curitiba, Brazil and Dominican Republic.
