Dr. Kurt Bruksch just returned from a fantastic medical mission trip to the San Blas Islands, which are strung out along the Caribbean coast of Panama, South America. He traveled with a team of two dentists, 4 dental students and interpreters to provide much needed care and education to the Kuna people of Achutupu. The trip was organized through Mission Save a Smile.
It was a great experience! Childhood dental decay is unfortunately rampant in this indigenous culture, one of the best preserved of all the indigenous cultures of the Americas. More information on this organization can be found on <a href=”http://missionsaveasmile.org”>missionsaveasmile.org.</a>
