Local dentist provides care in Guatemala


January 10, 2011

Dr. Tracy DeLorm, a voluntary member of the Lake Stevens Rotary Club “Team Guatemala”, provided three days of dental care to 35 Guatamalans. Most of the procedures were tooth extractions for the children but Dr. DeLorm did have access to a dental unit and was able to do several fillings as well. Besides providing dental care, Dr. DeLorm and other members of Team Guatemala toured the construction progress at the Monterrico Community Center and Education Center in Monterrico, Guatemala. Team Guatemala is a partnership with Healing the Children and the University of Washington Network of Family Medicine Residency Programs and Centro Cristiana Cultural of Guatemala in raising funds for the project from the beginning to the end of the construction.
