Peter Schmeiding will be the first to tell you: he’s not one to talk about himself. But for the Ennis, Big Sky and Bozeman dentist, there’s a lot more than just a successful dental practice to discuss.
Big Sky dentist Peter Schmieding is currently stuck in Nepal from when he traveled to work for the nonprofit he co-founded – Tsering’s Fund. There are currently no hospital systems, there is no oxygen anymore and people are dying in the streets.
Poverty, gender discrimination and limited access to education often equals a tough road for many Nepali girls.
Big Sky local Kathy Bouchard burst into Dr. Pete Schmieding’s office with an $800 check and the declaration that she wanted to sponsor a premature baby in Nepal. Schmieding had just made a Facebook post about the abandoned five-day-old baby who weighed well under five pounds.
