Dr. Stubbs' Guatemala Mission Trip By Alicia Green on July 03, 2019

Dr. Stubbs and his team believe strongly in making our community and the world a better place. Not only does Stubbs Dental give back to our local community in the greater Salt Lake Valley but Dr. David Stubbs goes on dental mission trips around the world. In the past he has served missions in Peru and Ecuador.

Last week Dr. Stubbs went to Guatemala City, Guatemala and provided free dental care to those in need at the la Clinica Dental Tio Juan. This dental clinic is owned by the Tio Juan Orphanage and operated by LDS missionary doctors and their families. The clinic not only treats the childern in the orphanage but The Church of Latter Day Saint missionaries as well.

Not only did Dr. Stubbs volunteer his time and expertise, he got to work along side other amazing doctos that share his values in serving their communities and beyond.

While learning about the local Guatemalan culture and history Dr. Stubbs and his family were able to visit a Jade Museum and take a look at what he found!

This could be a symbol of social status, a rite of passage, punishment, or sacrifice

All the doctors and staff at Stubbs Dental just want to say thank you to all of our patients once again. Our patients are the reason that Stubbs Dental is able to give back in the ways that we do. We wouldn't be here without you!
