Ship’s dentist Barry does extraction for Dutch yachtswoman off a nearby boat at anchor, Luganville

A Dutch couple, 7 years sailing the world, diverted from their Fiji to PNG voyage to find a dentist. Dropping anchor next to us they noticed the word “Medical” on the side of our boat and after a few phone calls, Barry Stewart was more than happy to drop in after this day doing the oral health survey to provide treatment.


After a days rest, without going ashore or needing to clear customs, they will be on their way to PNG
One very happy patient and her supportive partner… (not sure about the tooth fairy protocol this far from home)
