Prior to the earthquake, there was less than one dentist per 10,000 people. The people of Petite-Riviere were very fortunate to have Dr. John Theodorou as dentist during our 3rd medical mission. Having retired from full-time dentistry in Florida, he readily answered an ad that Rasin Foundation had posted for a volunteer dentist on the American Dental Association website. Dr. Theodorou was very eager to be of service to the people of Haiti after such a terrible tragedy. He taught oral hygiene, distributed dental hygiene kits and performed dental extractions. He was greatly admired by the children who constantly surrounded him. The patients who could not find nor afford a dentist in Leogane finally were relieved of their pain.
