"I got an awful lot from being able to help some beautiful beautiful children with some dental problems.To come to a country that doesn’t have any dental careat all and to do a just little bit butto these people it probably felt a lot. It means a lot to me and hopefully those children who have had the treatment will feel better for our efforts."

"We rarely see that level of decay in children in England and it makes you realise how lucky you are but it also took me back to my childhood when I had a lot of teeth out as a young child as well so, yes, it was a very emotional roller coaster experience for me and working with limited equipment and limited drugs, language barrieras well – yeah, I got a lot out of it. "

"I got from today a sense of achievement, accomplishment and it was good. It was good, good to come away to a foreign country, communication all over the place but it all came together and we all worked together. The kids were superb, they were fantastic, they were absolutely beautiful people and hopefully as a team we have done some good – well I know we have and it was worth coming. It was fantastic."

"I’ll tell you what I got from today. I’ve seen how the kids here have just put up with us, a bunch of strangers who have just come along. There is a language barrier as well as all the sort of treatment that we would normally provide chair side in our country and how well they put up with it. Yes, they’ve got problems, they’ve got issues with their "oral hygiene and a lot of them need a lot more treatment than we could provide but we have helped and they have put up with it so well. In fact, everyone has been so generous and so hospitable and it’s been great – it’s "humbling. I’ve loved every second of it and I hope to "do it again."
