District 13 — Fellow In Action News — Dr. Bradley C. Louie — A Dental Mission to Guatemala

February 26, 2018 — A Dental Mission to Guatemala Guatemala is one of the poorest Latin American countries.

Poor oral hygiene practices coupled with little access to dental care creates a perfect storm for uncontrolled dental caries. In July 2017, ICD Fellow Dr. Bradley C.
