Our clinic days have started...

Need a taller chair for Shannon. Please avert your eyes from the electrical hazard.

Nice ergonomics, Sam. Check out the handy dandy crates for dental units.

90 degree bend for Krista. Not so comfortable.

Clean area. 

One knee stand technique by Krista.

Dirty Area

Self-care supplies
We will be at Entreamigos Community Center for the next 5 days. We are scheduled to see 1 patient per student for each day, setting a goal of completing a client in 4 hours.  Today we saw two Class 3s and 1 Class 4 and 5 children. In the end, we spent 6 hours at the center from set-up to clean-up time. Two patients are returning and one was completed. Yay!


  1. Hello Ada, Krista, Shannon and Sam!

    Glad to see that you arrived safely and made it through customs once again… what a relief!

    Seeing these pictures brings back such fond memories! I can’t wait to hear about your experiences in San Pancho. Providing oral health care and education is such a gift in a community with limited access. You should be proud!

    Good luck with the next few long days of clinic. Remember to stretch!

  2. Wow - you guys don't waste any time getting down to it!! Glad to hear you made it safe and sound and all is well in San Pancho. It feels cold enough to snow here today so enjoy those rays!
    Here's to another great Field School!!

  3. Hi Daniel-lee and Missy,
    Yes, we're off and running. The students are great. It's a different energy than having 10 Camosunites here. We've been keeping the advertising on the down low as we don't want to turn anybody away. Our week's schedule was filled up by the second day and already have a waitlist of 5 people.

    Your weather comment, Missy made us feel lucky to be here. Grateful. It's been very nice here. Shannon was a little sunburned two days ago but she's not uncomfortable. I seem to be getting the most mosquito bites! What's up with that?

    Talk soon.

  4. It looks like you are settling in quite well. I am really enjoying your pictures and comments.
