LDS Dental Clinic Offers Free Care to Nuns in Samoa

It's so great to see the good Church members are doing all over the world!

Entering the dental clinic operated by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Apia, Samoa, it seemed out of place to see two Carmelite nuns waiting to be seen by one of the two Mormon dentists at the clinic.

Asked how she came to know about the clinic, Carmelite Sister Margarita Petelo said that the sister she came with had been treated there before.

Upon inquiry, Connie Rencher, a volunteer at the clinic and wife of one of the dentists, indicated that the clinic provides no-cost dental care to all in need, regardless of religious affiliation.
