On February 20th, Dr. Jack Ratley welcomed his first patient to the Pool of Siloam Dental Clinic. Dr. Ratley has been providing urgent dental care in his private practice at no cost to our patients on referral for over three years. He donated his dental equipment to the Pool and his son, Mark Ratley covered the cost of installation. With the help of dental assistant, Grace, Dr. Ratley is holding clinics two afternoons a week.
The arrival of the Ratleys has been no less than incredible. Jack, Mark, Tricia and Grace were on VIM missions with Terry and Dr. Strain in Mexico where the original discussions about the need to start a clinic in our own community began. Heads up to the rest of you who were blessed by cold showers, the 4 am sidwalk sweeper and the goats and chickens at the Quiet House. God may be calling you.
