It's really nice to see all these kind-hearted doctors that go to some of the most impoverished parts of the world to help those who need them the most. You can't help but feel proud that there are people willing to give help to other people in their own special way. In this case, the gift of a smile that can never be replaced.

What I love about dentists, doctors, and teachers is that they can offer help by rendering services to those in need. Children in Guatemala will surely have a life-changing experience with the services offered by this medical team.
