Orientation to hospital and schools

Yesterday, we met with the hospital directors, resident hospital dentist, and the school directors of the primary and middle school. The tour of the hospital provided by Dr. Ortega gave us all insight on the Mexican health care and how dental hygiene/dentistry is viewed in Mexico.
