School of Dentistry students Volunteer at Buca Bay

School of Dentistry students volunteer at Buca Bay   The Buca Bay clinic is on the grounds of Vatuvonu Adventist School in Fiji. Here, students warmly welcome the School of Dentistry team. In June, dental and dental hygiene students traveled to Vatuvonu Adventist School where they would provide dental care to the people of Buca (pronounced “butha”) Bay, Fiji.

For the remainder of the trip, the group flew in a small, 10-seater plane for nearly two hours more; then rode another two hours over unpaved, bumpy dirt roads to Vatuvonu Adventist School. This group was one of 14 that spread out around the world in 2001 providing dental care to more than 2,000 patients. Service learning is an integral part of the process of becoming a Christian professional. There were no phones, hotels, stores, or restaurants in Buca Bay. The school has a coed dorm (concrete floors) and outdoor showers. The beds were metal cots with mosquito netting. Power is run by generators, which meant lights out at 9:30 p.m. Vatuvonu Adventist School and the clinic on its grounds are a special project of the Dream Machine Foundation, founded by Steve Arrington, former lead diver with Jacques Cousteau. Fourth-year dental student Shea Bess (right), who rallied his classmates to join the mission trip, works with Steve Wernick.
