"I have had the good fortune of practicing dental hygiene on four continents and IN six countries. What have I learned? That people are the same all over the world. They want the same things . . . for their children to be happy and healthy, loved, and respected."
- Mary Jensen, RDH
Jensen recently returned from Bangladesh, her ninth medical mission trip for Alliance for Smiles. She volunteers as a member of the dental team, which helps screen patients and prepare them for surgery.
Alliance for Smiles (AFS) provides free reconstructive surgery to children with cleft lips and cleft palates in China, Africa, the Philippines, and Bangladesh. Supported by donations and Rotary Grants, AFS takes full medical and dental teams on two-week mission trips. These trips are life-changing . . . for both the child and the volunteer.
