Haiti Mission Trip April 5- April 13

Wednesday, April 21st, 2010

Our first trip back to Haiti since the earthquake…so much destruction, loss of life (around 200,000 people), confusion and fear. Fear is mostly related to being in buildings. People are living in tents everywhere the earthquake affected. The buildings are not trusted and they have had so many aftershocks, even as recently as last week.
We slept in tents in the village of Baudin and worked in our dental clinic during the day. A new addition on this trip was Dr. Ken Rudman from Rhode Island.
Our group of seven (3 dentists) saw 291 patients, extracted just over 1000 teeth and did 28 fillings as well as some miscelaneous oral surgury.
Our next trip is May 29 – June6. Our group will consist of myself, Dr. Pat Blaney, Terri Fattig (dental hygienist from Galveston Texas), my wife Laura, my daughter Amy and her husband Brian, my daughter Vicky, And Amy’s friend Tina. It should be a great trip!!!!
