Volunteer Dentists to Amazon: Living Amazon Project

Marin California Dental Group Serves Yarapa River Villagers

LSM's Living Amazon Projects include hosting a group of dentists

from Marin California recently at the Amazon Yarapa River Lodge

in the Amazon jungles outside of Iquitos, Peru. The dental group

generously offered their services gratis to the village of Nuevo

Loreto on the Yarapa River.

In less than a week they screened 62 villagers, treated 58 of them

with 198 fillings/73 extractions/7 root canals/1 crown. Almost all

of the villagers had never seen a dentist before.

Much gratitude for their generosity of heart and spirit goes to

Doctors Alex and Richard Schmotter, DDS, and their Corte Madera,

California dental staff.

The village of Nuevo Loreto and we here at LSM have invited the

dental group to return in the future....may it be so!

LSM promotes good work in the world....
