Dental Mission Trip to Panama

This was the most rewarding mission trip I have ever attended. The new dental clinic in the Ngobe reservation worked perfectly allowing us to perform regular operative dentistry and not just extract teeth. With two dentist, two assistants and a dental hygienist we were able to see 170 patients over five days. We probably filled two hundred teeth and extracted 75 teeth. We had enough left over supplies to leave for the next team. Schein really came through for us.

This clinc was remarkable. Being able to give young children and adults their smiles back truly touched everyone on the team. The Ngnobe people were wonderful. Great family values and a sense of community. The missionary leader of our team Rhett Thompson is an incredibly dedicated Christian.

I know we will do this again and I hope Schein will support us again.
