In late February 2019, right before Covid-19 became a stark reality, Dr. Neda Kalantar & a team of dentists & chefs managed to make it on a dental/culinary mission to Huachipa, Peru. The people in this hard hit community were exceptionally kind, hardworking & positive. A definite reminder of our daily blessings. This unique collaboration was to bring clean food, safety & oral health education & basic care to a community devastated by flooding. Dental students from Lima, dental specialists & chefs from Washington DC all worked together to bring this to fruition. An incredible and humbling experience.
