Dr. Blaine & Dr. Trudy Aucoin
Nicaragua Trip Leaders
Blaine and Trudy are a husband and wife team of dentists based in Edmonton. After succumbing to the charms of Dr. Dennis Bedard, both Drs. Aucoin went on their first missions to Nicaragua as volunteers, and now are the trip leaders for the rural dental missions in Nicaragua. Blaine has been on DFA missions to Nicaragua 6 times, and Trudy has gone on 5 missions to Nicaragua. After practicing in Hinton, Alberta for 25 years, they are now professors at the University of Alberta School of Dentistry. Blaine continues to practice dentistry one day a week at Granada Dental in Sherwood Park, Alberta, while Trudy practices at an inner city clinic in Edmonton that provides dental care to patients on the margins of society.
