Hello Fellow Volunteers,

After a quick six years the San Pedro Smile Center is complete
and waiting for you to make it a success.
Let me reintroduce myself, because I have been collecting
names for the last six years and telling you I'll get back to you
when the clinic opens. I am Dr. Mark Johnson. My wife Joan and I
practice dentistry in Minnesota and Belize. We also have a beach
house that you may have rented www.bluedolphinbelize.com. We also
have a private practice in Belize www.minnesotadentistry.net. We
may have met you at our home, volunteering somewhere, in Belize or
by referral.
With this new two operatory facility our goal is to change the
Belizean peoples' attitude toward dentistry, especially the
children. Right now we're viewed as the person you go to when you
have pain and swelling to "get the tooth pulled". we hope to
encourage prevention and change their mind set. We are going down
with our staff and some friends to see the first patients mid
January. Our target will be the school children, ages 4-12 and we
plan to give them a ride in the chair count their teeth MAYBE deal
with any immediate needs,treatment plan them, give them a toy and
leave them with a smile.
I have been charged with recruiting volunteers, credentialing
the doctors for their temporary belizean dental license and
scheduling their stays. We hope to offer near by
complimentary hotel accommodations and receipts for donations of
time and supplies.
Our volunteers will have to get themselves to San Pedro Town,
Ambergris Caye, Central America. Most major airlines fly to Belize
International now. We are on an island so you have to take a 14
passenger 15minute plane ride or 60 minute ferryboat ride to get
If you are still interested in helping with this project,
where there really is a great need, please let me know, any input
is appreciated because we have never done anything like this

Very truly yours,

Dr. Mark Johnson

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain.
