The fall Haiti dental trip took place between October 5 in October 15, 2015. Leaving from the US on the team were Ralph and Barbie Porter, Karen Becker, dentists Brandon Taylor and Lea Fowler, and Greg Seelig. Joining us in Haiti – and remaining after we left – was Nancy Bukovnik. During the six days the clinic was in operation, we were pleased to work with a Haitian dentist, Dr. Rousseau of Gros Morne.
Over 100 patients were seen at the clinic, and received quality care which included a number of difficult surgical extractions. Cleanings and fillings were also provided, and on Sunday afternoon a “bush clinic” was conducted across the river for administering fluoride treatments to the children of Fond du Roc. A particular highlight of the trip was worshipping at Pastor Jean Roberts church on Sunday morning. A hearty “Merci ampile” for Blaud, Christophe and all the Mission staff for their assistance, hospitality and especially the cooking!
