Another successful trip for Dr. Benhamou’s Kindness in Action team
This year we returned to Espita, Yucatan, Mexico. We treated 755 patients, with a total of approximately 650 extractions, 371 restaurations, 9 endos, several surgeries, 34 full mouth debridements and delivered for the first time 61 removable acrylic dentures in 8 very full working days. There were also workshops on leadership, violence and alcoholism given to 250 people by the psychologist on our team. The team was composed of 20 people: 4 dentists, 6 McGill dental students, 3 John Abbott dental hygiene students, a dental hygienist, three assistants, a dental technician, a lab technician and a psychologist. We had an amazingly cohesive team of dedicated hardworkers!
