Immediately after graduating, Dr. Fry served on the first medical and dental humanitarian team to Nicaragua since the global COVID-19 pandemic began, providing emergency and preventive dental care in remote mountainous regions of the country. He currently lives and practices full-scope general dentistry in the Fox River Valley area west of Chicago.
