Dr. Rabot’s initial exposure to the Mission of Mercy events was when he volunteered for New Mexico’s first Mission of Mercy in 2010. He was charged by Dr. Fred Olsen, then President of CADS to attend the event and bring back information to see if it was a project we should bring to the people of Arizona.
Not only did Dr Rabot observe the event but, rolled up his sleeves and provided Oral surgery services on both days. He was hooked and knew at that time it was imperative to bring the event to Arizona, and help the residents of Central Arizona relieve their dental pain.
