MAKING A DIFFERENCE: DR. KIM NORDBERG IN GUATEMALA

For the past 12 years, WSDA Member and Loma Linda Dental School Adjunct Professor Dr. Kim Nordberg has been making short term dental mission trips to Guatemala and El Salvador with a group that has included his sons Peder and Eric; students from dental schools at Loma Linda, USC and UCLA; and fellow dentists from the Christian Medical Dental Association of Southern California. 

While there, they see as many as 400 patients a week, working with 20 or more students and other volunteers including church members, local Christian dentists, interpreters, and even mechanics and electricians, providing care in 15 ops with nomad x-ray and digital laptop sensors, among other high-tech equipment. 

Dentists interested in participating in trips with the group can contact Dr. Mike Roberts, CMDA Southern California Area Director at drmiker@sbcglobal.net.
