Who is Dr. Alex Balaci?
Dr. Alex Balaci, of Balaci Oral and Facial Surgery, is a board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon and services patients from his practice in Lebanon. Dr. Balaci treats a variety of oral and facial conditions such as wisdom teeth removal, dental implant placement, facial trauma treatment, corrective jaw surgery and oral pathology screenings, just to name a few.
The Balaci EDU Program is an incredible opportunity for him to serve the children in the local community. Some young people may not feel like they have the support or guidance they need to follow their dreams. They may feel overwhelmed by the educational requirements or training it takes to become a doctor, or they may have an interest in becoming a doctor and need some more information to create the best educational path that they can start planning for now.
Dr. Balaci knows how important it is to give children an opportunity to explore their options and cultivate their interests so that they feel confident to pursue their goals, which is why he decided to present the Balaci EDU Program.
