David Chamberlain, Philippines Regional Service Representative
-Magandang araw and greetings from the Philippines! I hope to provide you an on-the-ground update of the Philippines dental clinic as well as other bits of information. (The clinic opened its doors on July 17th to provide humanitarian dental service.)
Full-time missionary service opportunity
I arrived in Manila on Saturday, September 17th with a very unique opportunity—to work for two weeks in this modern, four-chair clinic constructed within the MTC campus across the street from the Manila Philippines Temple. This dental clinic is available
to couples for six, 12, 18 and 23 month full-time missionary service. There are currently two couples serving here: Elder & Sister Burtenshaw, and Elder & Sister Stewart.
What did I nd when I toured the clinic? A modern, four-chair operation that is computerized, using Dentrix practice management software, with digital panograph and intraoral imaging; completely new construction ( ooring, cabinets, counters, sinks, etc); clean, and air conditioned! Virtually any dental procedure can be provided in this clinic.
The dentist-missionary couple is very busy managing & running the clinic, and treating the full-time missionaries.
I attended Sacrament meeting at a ward comprised of local Filipinos, General Authorities and church employees with their families, American diplomats and business professionals (50% of the ward are Americans.)
Besides working in the dental clinic, additional activities for dental missionaries include temple work, serving in the ward, furthering relationships among Filipino dental professionals,and site seeing.
I invite you to call Rich Call (720-496-7374) or myself (David Chamberlain at 801-680-2209) to explore this opportunity to serve a mission as a dentist in the Philippines.
