Kenya trip

I was able to travel to Kenya with the charity GVM and work with IDPs (internally displaced people) following the election violence of 2007. Our team consisted of five doctors, two nurses, and myself providing the dental service. We ran four clinics and I saw over 100 patients. People have no access to medical/dental care as some of the camps are in very isolated areas. As you can see, there was a tremendous need for the services we were able to provide.

I was able to use an Aseptico folding dental chair. Nevertheless, some back ache at the end of each day because of the constant leaning over.

One of the camps was near the Masai Mara National Park, and we had the opportunity to spot some wildlife.

I hope to do this again, and felt that my skills in oral surgery were able to be used in a very specific way.
