Most of our mission clinics are operated out of school buildings. This particular clinic was in a village in the southern part of Belize.

Carolyn Holmes, RDA

Carolyn Holmes has been Dr. Frizzell's dental assistant for 27 years. She is a registered dental assistant and provides expert chairside assistance.  Besides being a competent professional, she is the heartbeat of the practice.  The minute you walk in the door, it is not unusual to hear her singing or laughing.  Many patients love the good-natured jokes they share with Carolyn and enjoy her bright, uplifting look at life.  You just have to meet her to believe her!

Carolyn's Enchanted Forest

For several years, Carolyn has been collecting Christmas Trees and filling her house with them. At the office, we refer to this as "Carolyn's Enchanted Forest".  At last count, she had 21 trees in her home at Christmas. Recently, Fox 13 did an interview with Carolyn about her growing hobby.
