San Quintin Dental Mission
In the summer of 2017, Dr. Woo, Dr. Yung, and several other dentists travelled to San Quintin, a small rural town in Mexico. This little town was in dire need of dental services, thus the dentists provided much needed dental work to the most vulnerable.
In situations where finding access to proper housing or even food is difficult, receiving dental treatment is not a priority on anyone mind. Very many of the cases that Dr. Woo and Dr. Yung had treated during their stay, in San Quintin, were simple oral conditions that were not able to be treated due to a lack of resources. These problems festered and led to debilitating symptoms which impacted their daily lives. However, with the doctors’ expert advice and treatments, people were able to be pain free and also stay that way.
