Bahamas Dental Mission, Oct 24-27 , 2019
After weeks of planning with a phenomenal group of collaborators, International Medical Relief’s charter plane was packed to the ceiling with procured supplies and equipment including dental chairs, medications, units and everything needed to set up a mobile dental clinic. After a short flight from Fort Lauderdale to Nassau, the plane landed and was quickly unloaded. With the help of our Bahamian partners, all items cleared customs and were transported to the venue.
Set up went smoothly with the help of phenomenal humanitarians who were willing to do whatever is needed to serve vulnerable patients. Nurse practitioners, dentists, nurses, physicians, and others spent their valuable time to set up this clinic, including putting together dental chairs, sorting dental tools and ensuring we had all the right medications to support this effort. As they worked together, it was beautiful to watch the transformation of an empty room to a venue for service, education and pain alleviation. This is the first-ever Bahama dental outreach coordinated and led by the Bahamian Dental Association, in partnership with so many. It is the hope that this will be a regularly coordinated event to serve the most vulnerable throughout the islands.
