Dr. Bob Baxt practiced dentistry in Boulder for many years, beginning in 1978. He worked with Boulder Action for Soviet Jewry (BASJ) for several years in the late 1980s, organizing a program through which he and other dentists provided pro bono dentistry for newly arrived Soviet Jewish immigrants in Boulder. In this interview he describes that work for BASJ and discusses some of the differences between Soviet and American dentistry.
