Guatemala 2012

The Iowa MOST(Miles of Smiles Team) mission to Guatemala is a 10 day Cleft Lip and Palate medical/dental mission. The dental student experience includes screening patients for reconstructive surgical and dental needs. Dental students will assist in the operating room with dental extractions and cleft lip and palate reconstructive surgeries. In addition, dental students will assist in the fabrication of palatal obturators for patients that are not candidates for reconstructive surgery.”
