Guatemala Dental Mission Trip

Mar 22 2018

My family and I were able to spend a week at the Ana Edith Hernandez Escobar Dental Clinic in Peronia, Guatemala. The clinic has a systematic approach to humanitarian dental outreach developed so our week of service was focused on making human connections through dentistry.
Peronia is a hillside community on the outskirts of Guatemala City. The average person in Peronia earns about $400 per year and families struggle to fulfill basic needs. The patients don’t have very good access to dental treatment and we were excited to help. Most traveled very far to the clinic and wore their best clothes they own for their appointments. The patients were grateful with hugs and smiles. The experience was incredible!
