Surgical & Dental Mission
HMC has just returned from a surgical and dental mission trip to Puerto Plata Dominican Republic. In 4 days our dental team was able to see 265 pediatric patients seen (ages 3-16): each one had a toothbrush cleaning, oral hygiene instructions, and fluoride varnish application. We also performed several extraction, fillings and other procedures. Our surgical team focused primarily on ENT and performed 39 surgeries. We also had 49 consults, some non-surgical candidates and some will be scheduled for up coming mission trips. Next surgical mission will be in November 2014!
