NEXT MISSION DATES JULY 15-22
We are looking for dentists, dental assistants, dental hygienists, and general volunteers. There is something for everyone to do. For more information about being part of the upcoming mission, please click on the Contact tab and drop us a line.
In March 2020, the dental team was the last team out of Honduras as COVID-19 hit. The safety of our volunteers and patients is our top priority. We returned to Honduras in September 2022 and followed all travel guidelines set by the CDC and the United States and Honduran governments. We also observed CDC guidelines in the clinic and at the schools.
In September 2022, we finally returned to Honduras! This year four Honduran dentists joined with our American team to provide free dental care in the clinic. Again this year we returned to the schools to provide oral hygiene instruction and fluoride treatments to over 250 school children. More photos coming soon.
Another successful dental mission! In March we were joined by Dr. Forrest Bowen and his daughter Elizabeth. Dr Bowen, with his calm and gentle nature, was especially good with our young patients in the clinic and at the schools. Elizabeth worked tirelessly and jumped right in, always willing to do anything asked of her! Dr. Oscar was also with us for the week and we appreciate his dedication year after year. Big news! Maritza Urbina, who has been volunteering with us for several years, is now Dr. Maritza. We congratulate her and are so happy to have her working with us during our mission weeks. We added another school to our school outreach program, increasing the number of children we are educating on the importance of good dental hygiene and protecting with fluoride. With the help of donations from individuals and the Henry Schein Foundation, we were able to supply every patient with a toothbrush, toothpaste, and floss.
