This summer some of you may have seen my daughter, Taira, working in the office. This was in preparation for next week when she will accompany me on a week long dental mission to the Dominican Republic where we will provide dental care with 26 other team members to some of the poorest of poor. Five to six dentists will be on the trip and each of us will see about 50 patients a day. So close to 1500 patients will be seen during our stay. Conditions will be somewhat primative as there are no dental units and we will use flashlights to see into the mouth. I look forward to the stories of our trip when I return.
