Well, we're back from our medical/dental trip to Guatemala.  My assistants Iris and Odalmis travelled with me along with a team of physicians, nurses, paramedics and 5 other dentists.  This included Dr. Domenic Delle Donne and his assistant, Joanna.  Domenic practices as an endodontist (root canal specialist) in Milton.  Having him aboard was invaluable because he allows us to save teeth that would often otherwise need to be extracted. Having Joanna on the team meant that Domenic was as efficient as ever.  Iris and Odalmis are key to our success because of their assisting skills and the fact that they are fluent in Spanish.  I'm not.  :(

This year the dental team saw 710 children and adults over 5 working days.  We travelled up to 1 1/2 hours from our hotel at the crack of dawn each morning to poor areas which have little access to any medical or dental care.  Three of those days this year were in a slum where 30,000 people live.  As always, the days were long and tiring but rewarding.  The need in these areas is incredible, and with long line-ups we can only spend a limited amount of time with each person.  But, I like to think that we helped make their lives a little better as a result.

I would like to thank Sinclair Dental, Hansamed, Germiphene, Sure Dental, Patterson Dental and Parkell for their generous donation of supplies.  You may not have been there, but we couldn't have done it without you!
