The Smile Foundation Dental Mission Trip 2014

Our May 2014 mission trip was another huge success! During May 2014, we closed one office location so that Dr. Lauten Johnson and his team of volunteers could again travel to the beloved island off the coast of Cancun- Isla Mujeres, Mexico. They were able to treat hundreds of smiles and impact many lives of locals who lacked basic dental care. Employees Claire Mitchell, Tizzy Howard, and (now) Paige Preston along with 14 other volunteers from all over the nation treated and educated people of Isla and surrounding areas.

Having built strong relationships throughout the island, communication prior to our arrival was the best it had ever been. We were welcomed last year with open arms; a new community facility was offered to set up our dental clinic; and even printed flyers were posted around the island advertising our arrival! The Smile team also traveled to the mainland to serve other Isla citizens at a second clinic. By the end of our 2014 mission trip Dr. Johnson and his team had treated over 700 patients between both dental clinics!

We are looking forward to reuniting with our friends of Isla again this year. There are 16 volunteers going this May 24-30th,2016! Please continue to pray for The Smile Foundation efforts and follow our pages to receive updates about our trip: SmileFoundationDental.com and Facebook.com/smilefoundationdental

We could not do these incredible missions without the support of our patients. Thank you from the entire staff to all who have allowed us to keep serving the people of Isla Mujeres. Pediatric & Adolescent Dentistry would like to thank our generous sponsors for donating dental supplies year after year:

"Mission work brought me to dentistry", says Dr. Johnson. Before attending UAB Dental School, Dr. Johnson participated in dental mission trips to Peru, Mexico, and Costa Rica. "Dental care is of such great need everywhere but not accessible in many countries which is why I think that it is important to do this trip annually".
