BOULDER, CO, March 10, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Dr. John Montoya, dentist in Boulder, CO, was happy to share his skill and talent in Nicaragua to help those in need of dental work. Dr. Montoya traveled with a medical and vision team as well and saw about 200 patients each day on their 10 day stay.
"We are so excited that we had this opportunity to go and provide services to those who have little to no access to dental care. The bugs, heat, lack of running water and electricity take a backseat when you are on a mission to help others. It was a wonderful experience and we are so thankful for the opportunity," said Dr. Montoya, Boulder cosmetic dentist.
Dr. Montoya and his team moved from village to village day by day and set up clinics wherever they could. Some days it was abandoned buildings, other days it was yards or schools. One day they even got lucky and set up inside a functioning health clinic. The patient's age ranged from 4 to 87 years old. Dr. Montoya and his team were able to relieve some pain for the locals by removing teeth and providing fillings when possible. "Most of the teeth we saw were so badly decayed that they could not be saved," said Dr. Montoya," "It was sad to see so many young kids with multiple dental problems, even at the young age of 4."
Dental work was not the only thing they helped some of the local Nicaraguans with. Dr. Montoya and the rest of the group were able to provide funding and man-power to help build a home for a family in need and provided some villages with water filters. Clothing, blankets and prenatal vitamins were also given to expectant mothers in the area. "This is an experience we look forward to repeating," said Dr. Montoya, Boulder dentist.
