This lesson introduces our Spanish for Dentistry series. The lessons in this series will be at the beginner to intermediate level and are included under both our Premium Medical Spanish and our Basic Medical Spanish memberships. We will cover vocabulary and essential phrases pertaining to:
Braces, Dentures, Crowns and Bridges
Our guest Spanish teacher for this series is Francisco González Yojcóm from San Pedro La Laguna, Guatemala. After we review vocabulary pertaining to the teeth and mouth, Francisco tells us about his new Spanish school.
We would like to give special thanks to one of our members: Nancy Grainer. Nancy provided us with a list of useful vocabulary and phrases in English, which we expanded on and made into lessons for this series. Nancy is a retired dialysis social worker who now volunteers at a free medical and dental clinic and her husband is a dentist. Nancy is a perfect example of why we make this podcast, to support people serving our Spanish-speaking communities. Muchísimas gracias, Nancy Grainer!
