Dr. Reagan had a fantastic trip to Belize this year! Read below for his blog about his experience on the 2016 medical mission.
This year, 2016, was our 8th year to return to Belize with The North Belize Medical Mission. Like all the previous years this one didn’t disappoint. We treated over 1,000 patients – we were very busy! We continued our sealant program bringing it to another village. We can tell we are on the right track. This year on our last day we did no extractions, only restorations. A few years ago extractions were the only game in town. If it hurt, they wanted it out!
The other big event was we met a local Dentist. So now we have a friend that can help with keeping an eye on those we see over the course of the week we are down there. Each year we grow more connected with our Belizean family. The relationships we have formed over the last 8 years have been life changing for my family.
As a dad, it was really a proud dad moment when you see one daughter helping the surgeon sew someone’s hand back up and hearing the other having a conversation in Spanish. That’s blessed!!
