Dr. Shane Fisher

Guatemala (Comitancillo - Spring)

Shane is a board certified pediatric dentist in Wisconsin. In 2005, he began his connection with Guatemala when he traveled with Dentistry for All founder, Dr. Dennis Bedard. From that point on, DFA has been a major part of his life. He has either participated in or been the trip leader on a total of 35 dental mission trips to Guatemala. He has traveled to almost all of DFA’s Guatemala sites in the past, but Comitancillo, San Marcos is where his heart belongs. In 2010, Shane spent 9 months in Guatemala to establish stronger ties with the people in Comitancillo and establish DFA’s first long-term clinic. Today, that clinic still functions with the staffing of DFA employees from Comitancillo and an intern from the University of San Carlos most of the year. Shane remains active leading trips to Guatemala every year. He is the Executive Director for Dentistry for All – USA, our American branch. His partner, also Shane, has similarly become a fixture in DFA and is always seen working hard supporting DFA and the people of Guatemala.
