From humanitarian dentist to dental missionary

A 5-year-old Guatemalan girl told Dr. Richard L. Call, a dentist from Westminster, Colo., in a temporary dental clinic in Guatemala,” I just want to eat my food and not have it hurt. Can you help me?” Call said, “When I looked inside her mouth, I found 12 abscessed teeth. The rest all had cavities. Broke my heart.”

This little girl would have suffered throughout her life without help. Her nutrition and over-all health would have been affected. I’m glad to say humanitarian dentists and the Hirsche Smiles Foundation came to her aid.

However, reporters have brought us lots of hard-to-receive news this year. So, it was nice to hear an upbeat story focusing on the true meaning of Christmas on Sun., Dec. 13. Chris Denham, a husband and father of two young children, started out his talk to a Broomfield congregation of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints by quoting the English poet, Christian Rossetti.
