First Time To The Dentist

Friendship Team Blesses Children in Remote Province

Treating a young patient

Dr. Ralph Thacker is the first dentist that most of the Tay Giang children have ever seen.  For several days, Dr. Thacker’s team saw child after child for examinations, teeth cleaning, and treatment.

In all, about 350 children, teachers and villagers received dental care. Forty children had a tooth pulled (they were brave about any discomfort or fear–and very appreciative of the excellent care!). All the children received a new toothbrush, tooth paste and dental floss.

Over and over, the children had one message to pass along to the dentist…and to you–the ones who sent the team from Danang to Tay Giang: “Thanks for helping us!”

Sharing your skill is a wonderful way to bless people.  Would you like to do so?  If you would like to bless “the least of these” on a friendship team, email
