Like my good friend Padraic said "Trip of a Lifetime!" . I was not expecting to walk away from this trip with so many positives.
I was afforded the opportunity to help more children in dental pain than I ever would have thought. But this was only the tip of the iceberg. I got to witness so many acts of love in a 2 week period that I never ever experienced before.
Sometimes you do need to stop and smell the roses.
The people in Vietnam impressed with genuine kindness. The group that was assembled by Lan quickly became a very effective dental team, and we all shared in the great good that we accomplished.
This mission is very powerful and that can be seen in the high number of repeat volunteers which I am soon to become.
Dr. Paul Dunbar, Maine, USA.
" Paul is a dentist and his wife Robin is a hygienist, both worked tirelessly and helped so many kids all day long, spreading love through their caring hands and hearts, and they said they will keep coming back. I sure hope they will. And somehow Paul and Padraic also managed to create "world peace" by completely impressed the local officials with their genuine kindness. You have to see it to believe it, it was magical! Lan Jones, DDS"
