Saturday November 7, 2009

Santo Domingo brought the heat and plenty of dental patients today. The day started with eggs and ham on the roof of the hotel and ended with 139 satisfied patients. After traveling through the city of Santo Domingo for an hour this morning we arrived at a special school that is funded by baseball great Pedro Martinez where hundreds of Dominican's were lined up ready to see our dentists. The sun was hot. The humidity was high, and everyone brought their "A" game. Our stations were set up outside under a giant pavilion right next to the school which made it easy for us to move the kids from the waiting area to the hygienists to the doctors. Our doctor's started the day off by helping the people with the most pain and then after lunch moved into more restorative work.

Working hard before lunch.
