Dentist visit


Yesterday definitely counts as one of my favorite days here! We had the opportunity to take 5 kids to the dentist for the first time. Everyday I get kids in the office with mouth pain, and after having a look inside their mouths I just see teeth that are rotten and missing and rough. Well we're about to change those things because we now have a dentist that wants to see ALL of our kids!!! It was incredible taking the kids out yesterday, spending time with them in a new setting, and knowing that we are really and truly meeting their needs. We go back next week to work on their teeth again...some had up to 9 cavities. The dentist also wants to come regularly to our school to check and work on each kid, so we're starting to look for and try to get a hold of dental equipment and supplies. It's amazing to be apart of the changes and growth that is happening. I love, just love, these kids!

Hey Jessi,

Allison from the all-chick work team in February here. Do you guys have a lead on a dental supplier? If you have a specific list of items, I have two contacts I could hit up for you (my uncle and a friend). Let me know if you need any help! Blessings to you and hooray for the great news! lars_allie@hotmail.com.
