MOMOM - The Set Up
Posted by Paul on 5/2/2013 9:16:00 AM
For those who are logistically inclined, watching an arena transform into a MOMOM clinic is fascinating. It takes coordination, many hands, and lots of flexibility. The America's Dentist Care Foundation brings all the fundamental equipment needed to operate a 100 chair temporary clinic. Big crates are unloaded, dental chairs are unfolded, sterilized, and set up. Water and power are set up for suction and lighting. An entire area is set up with sterilization equipment so tools can be cleaned and turned over in a timely fashion. LOTS of chairs are set up in a variety of waiting areas. All sorts of directional and informational signs are put out. Preparations are made to check in hundreds of volunteers and thousands of patients. It's no small feat but it's exciting to see many hands hard at work and then look up to see a clinic that's ready to go. The take down process is similar but by that time you're exhausted and it doesn't feel as glamorous - just satisfying knowing how many people were helped.
