Two more sleeps....

All the supply and equipment bags are packed and we are ready to go. The plan is to meet at the airport at 5:30 Thursday morning. We managed to squeeze everything in about 8 big bags (hopefully less than 50 lbs. each), plus our own personal bags for a grand total of 19 pieces of luggage and at least a dozen more carry-on bags. Thank you, Westjet!!!

Thank you everyone for your support in this international endeavour. Thank you to the CC Dental  department, to International Ed,  to our generous donors, to our family and friends, to the Year 1 and Year 2 students, to VIHA,  to Dr. Greg Grillo and his staff in Omak, Washington, to Dr. Amil Shapka @ Kindness in Action, and to everyone else along the way who sent us their well-wishes.


  1. Looks awesome! You have done a great job putting this project together, and we'll be happy to bring anything more you may need to finish up when we join you May 14. Looking forward to working with you all, see you soon!

    Here's to a month of making new friends, much oral health promotion and clinical services, learning about other ways of being, learning more about yourselves and what you are capable of, and of course, unforgettable sunsets on the beach.
    Have fun and stay safe!
