CE & EVENTS
In conjunction with all the volunteers of DoCare International, Dr. Kang
traveled to the outskirts of San Andres, Guatemala. His group treated over
800 dental patients and provided over 2000 dental procedures from five
different villages including a Mayan village with no dental access. Pictured,
is the Guatemalan boy whose entire family members, whose ages ranged
from 5 to 85, had severe teeth abscess and infections that required surgical
extractions. He was the only child that needed treatment on just one tooth.
