Just finished an incredibly productive and rewarding experience at the Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) Dental Clinic in Ndjiro. We would like to thank Dr. Teckle and give a special thanks to Dr. Zumo who took us under his wing and showed us the ropes. We were able to perform a number of extractions along with multiple restorations and even a root canal treatment. The SDA clinic is a modern dental clinic which provides a wide range of dental treatments such as fillings, crowns, and even ortho. Shannon and I were able to help with the daily flow of patients along with screen the orphanage in Maji Ya Chai and provide 4 boys with some much needed dental care. It was a nice change of pace to be able to provide patients with multiple treatment options and to be able to collaborate with the dentists on staff on best practices and current root canal techniques. It also didn’t hurt that we were able to take x-rays! We look forward to our free dental clinic next week which will run from Monday July 22 -25 where we will be providing free dental care to all patients at the Nkoaranga clinic. This clinic is supposed to be jam packed with over 30 patients a day so it should be quite rewarding.
The attached picture is of Shannon and I performing a 3rd Molar extraction for one of the boys from CCF Arusha orphanage.
