In March 2015, six members of the KHCP Dental Team travelled to Nepal for a three week tour. The team consisted of two dentists (Dr Daniel Hess and Dr Gunhild Wohlgenannt) and four helpers (Rosemarie Hess, Carina Hödl, Gabriele Koller and Simon Brockmeier). During the second and third week, the dental team was reinforced by a small medical team. In strong collaboration, the two teams performed dental and medical screenings and offered therapy and prophylaxis. During the whole tour, the two teams were effectively supported by Dr Sonam, our Nepalese KHCP-doctor, who gave us precious help in organizing the tour and in connecting us with the various monasteries and schools.
We installed our first camp at Sherab Gyaltsen Rinpoche‘s Manang Gompa at Kathmandu. The team members were highly motivated in building up the clinic, and after a couple of hours we were operative. As our “dental station” was equipped with two mobile dental units, every dentist had the possibility to act in a fully motorized working place. Such comfort was necessary because there was a lot of work to be done! Beside the dental treatments delivered to the numerous pilgrims at Manang Gompa we also provided therapy to the childrens of BIA Orphanage of Chogyal Rinpoche. During our visit at the orphanage we gave hygiene instructions to the children and trained them by collective tooth brushing. At the completion of our dental camp at Kathmandu, we got a most powerful blessing by Sherab Gyaltsen Rinpoche. He encouraged us in our motivation to help others and sent us off with many good wishes for a successful continuation of our tour!
