This month our Dr. Ravin had the incredible opportunity to head to the South American Amazon to bring his dental skills and years of expertise to a place where dental work is lacking.
His journey’s took him to the Iquitos area. Iquitos is the capital city of the Maynas Province and Loreto Region, the largest metropolis in the Peruvian Amazon. The villages he traveled to – Amazonas, San Fransisco, Port Miguel are the largest three in the area.
He saw hundreds of people from babies to grandparents, men and women, and even the not-so-occasional stray dog, and brought dental relief to hundreds. Here are a few photos from the trip to check out. Thank you to everyone who supported Dr. Ravin in this adventure!
