We came from Washington, California, and Tennessee to join hands with our Vietnam team to bring the much needed dental care and dental education to children living in the remote villages of Central and South Vietnam. We traveled by plane, bus, boat, and even by motorcycle to areas where there are only narrow roads for motorcycles or on foot. And one school can only be reached by boat. On this trip we had for the first time an entire family volunteered, Dr. Yolanda Mangrum, her husband Tom Walsh and their two sons, 13 years old Thomas, and 11 years old Patrick. Patrick is the youngest volunteer in our 35 year history. Our team helped over 2,000 elementary school children and 500 families with children from birth to 4 years old.
