The dentist is coming and we are ready

Last night I arrived home from the airport at 3:30 in the morning. Abby, Shelby and Miguel all came to pick me up, so they also arrive home early in the morning. Normally you get stuck in traffic because a sugar cane truck flipped over . But what we found out made us laugh. Apparently some of the truck drivers were tired and so they parked in the middle of the road in a town on our route and just went to sleep. So we sat in a huge line of traffic for 3 hours .

In spite of our delayed arrive we got to the clinic around 8:30 AM. The Guatemalan dentist we work with came with all the tools and supplies . The technician showed up later. It was great fun to see all the new tools and see the water connected to the drill . We tested the evacuator, got a new light for the dental chair and we are ready to go. Monday will be the first time we can do fillings in our clinic. This
took so much work I thought it would never happen. Watch for pictures soon.

  2. When you think about teeth, you might think of dentists and get scared. Many people do not like dentists and they associate them with bad feelings. This does not have to be true. When you find the correct dentist this makes visits and work ups a lot easier for you.
