At the end of locally dubbed name, Smile Project...we organized a goodbye dinner and invited those who have helped us greatly during our stay here in San Pancho. Most were able to come and share the beautiful evening with us. The dinner was held where the students had been staying for the month, and we were treated very well.
At the end of the evening, the students were very gracious and presented the San Pancho group with thank you cards and gifts. They also made personal donation to the Entreamigos community center. All unused dental supplies were given to the local hospital dental clinic.
The four weeks seemed to have flown by and we were left with an experience that was intense, satisfying, rewarding, and humbling. We hope to take what we have learned here to better ourselves, our patients, our practice, and our community back home.
