First, we want to thank Premier for sponsoring this mission trip and letting us use the AeroPro cordless handpiece.  This was a first for both Michelle and Daniel.  Offering the feeling of smooth, clean teeth is something many had not experienced, and we were grateful to be the ones who did that for them.  

You have heard Daniel Lopez on the podcast before.  This marks their third trip and third country together!  Daniel is a dental hygienist in NYC, and he and Michelle bring you a daily journal from their time in Costa Rica with One World Health.

We hope you enjoy this recap! If you feel inspired to do a mission trip or any charitable dentistry, reach out to us!
