Bush Dentistry

So, for us to get to a good dentist it is about a 3 hour drive one way to the city of Beira on the coast of Mozambique. My friend Charmain (she's from South Africa) came over last week and I did a "little dentistry" on her. She has a tooth that has a hole, doesn't want to drive all the way to Beira and I happened to have some Dentemp which is temporary filling stuff that I brought from the US. So here we are in my living room "filling" Charmain's tooth. We have photos because our husbands thought it was funny and decided to document the event. Amazingly, she said it is doing great. You never know what you might need to do on the mission field. Better come prepared!
