The morning of Saturday April 21, we had our monthly clinic trip to serve the community of Chapultepec in Ensenada, Mexico. We had a total of 14 volunteers and had 3 providers, 1 pharmacists, and 12 dentists also volunteer with us. We had a total of 5 cars that left the Stein parking lot at 6:45 am and 1 early car that left at 5:30 to organize and set up the clinic before everyone arrived. We arrived at the clinic at around 9:00 am. With the 3 providers, we were able to see 20 patients in total before leaving at 2:25 pm. We all ate at the usual taco shop until 3:30 pm and the left for the border. At the border, the wait took about 15 minutes for Sentri, 30 mins for Ready, and an hour for All-traffic lane, and we all arrived at campus around 6:30, 7:15, and 8:30 pm.

The morning of Saturday 4/7, we had our Orphanage Clinic Trip to serve the children in Rancho de los Ninos in Mexico. We had a total of 9 volunteers and had 1 provider as well. We had a total of 2 cars that left the Stein parking lot around 6:30 am and 1 early car that left at 6 am to pick up materials from regular clinic to bring to the Orphanage. We arrived at the clinic at around 9 am. With the 1 provider, we were able to see 10 patients in total before leaving at 1:30 pm. We ate at a Panaderia nearby and then left for the border (one car went back to the regular clinic to drop off some supplies).

Today clinic was very productive! Thanks to Dr. Rajasekaran, Dr. Roberto Salazar, Dr. Irais Lozano, we were able to see a total of 11 patients and schedule 6 appointments for our December clinic. Unfortunately we arrived to clinic 1 hour later than usual and were not able to see all 24 patients who had originally signed up, but we were able to execute important procedures and evaluations. We have implemented a better system to make clinic run more smoothly, which includes a number system to find our patients easier and give te patients an idea of ther wait time an appoinment system so we can esure patients are coming each month until their treatment plan is successfully completed. We were utlzing 3 dental chairs; 2 of which were using our portable suction units. Dr. Rajasekaran, Dr. Roberto Salazar, and Dr. Irais Lozano provided quality patient care throughout the day, and our 5 chairside volunteers worked quickly and efficiently to ensure we could see as many patients as possible. We would like to thank Dr. Roberto Salazar and Dr. Irais Lozano for coming to work with us for the first time, we cannot wait to work with them again!
Thank you to the Flying Sams for providing such helpful and accessible treatment for those in need!

The chilly morning of Saturday February 24th, we had our monthly clinic trip to serve the community of Chapultepec in Ensenada, Mexico. We had a total of 12 volunteers and 2 providers, 1 pharmacist, and 3 dentists also volunteer with us. We had a total of 3 cars that left the Stein parking lot at 6 am and 1 early car that left at 5:30 am to organize and set up the clinic before everyone arrived. We arrived at the clinic at around 8:30 am. With the 2 providers, we were able to see 28 patients in total before leaving at 1 pm. We also had a great Public Health presentation on Melanoma and Skin Protection, and our Public Health team passed out sunscreen for the patients. We had great success with our newly implemented Kid’s Corner, where children who are waiting to be seen can color with markers, crayons, etc. to pass the time. We all ate at the usual taco shop until 2 pm and the left for the border. At the border, the wait took about 1 hour, and we all arrived at campus around 6:15 pm.
