We went to Grace international in port au prince Haiti for four days. Dr. McGrath was accompanied by Dr. Abena Asare, Dental hygienist Steven Vassell, 16 junior board members, and chaperones. The Doctors preformed basic examinations, cleanings and some extractions for those that needed. By the end of the trip all members of the Kindersmile outreach trip helped a grand total of 474 kids and a few adults.
The thing that made this trip special for most if not all members on the trip was the reaction of the patients after they got their treatments. We could all see that their visit to the dentist had made their day and may have very well changed their lives. Another thing that made the trip special was the bonds that were created within the junior board members DR’s and chaperones. Several junior boards members said that after a trip like that people are no longer friends they are like family.
