“During the Philippines mission trip in March 2016, part of our mission was to provide dental services,” says Michael Harlow, Orcas Christian School senior. “The people we visited were in a remote area in the mountains and had no access to dentistry.” Orcas students worked, among other mission trip activities, as dental assistants to help a professional dentist extract teeth and provide oral hygiene training. “We provided them with toothbrushes, toothpaste and dental floss to help the people understand the need for oral hygiene and equip them with the tools necessary to start doing it,” Harlow says.
