Dr. Stubbs 2022 Dental Mission | Global Dental Relief
Dr. Stubbs recently made his yearly trek down to the Yucatan Peninsula to provide dental care to the adults and children of the Akumal area through the Global Dental Relief program. Their mission is to bring free dental care to children around the globe, and they have already served in Nepal, India, Guatemala, Mexico, Kenya, and Cambodia. Teams of volunteer dentists, hygienists, assistants, and general volunteers deliver treatment and preventive care in dental clinics that serve children in schools and remote villages.
With a vision to transform lives and cultivate community through volunteerism, they provide opportunities for diverse groups of volunteers to explore the world and bring free dental care and oral hygiene education to thousands of impoverished children.
Each day he traveled a short distance to the clinic to provide care to the locals. During this time he treated 384 patients over the course of the week. They donated clinical services such as pediatric dentistry as well as oral surgery.
"t was an incredibly rewarding and enriching experience. The people were all so kind and very grateful for our service. Making new friends with fellow volunteers was certainly a highlight, and being able to interact with so many amazing people was an unforgettable experience." - David Stubbs
