MARCH 7 - 14 2020
WE NEED YOU!
It will be here before you know it and WE NEED YOU!!! We are looking for volunteers for our March 2020 mission. If you have a heart for missions and would like to experience the joy of sharing your time and gifts with the under privileged, contact us for more information. We need dentists, dental assistants, dental hygienists, interpreters and general volunteers. There is something for everyone to do. So no matter what your skill set, you can be a blessing and at the same time be immeasurably blessed.
The Spring 2019 mission was a huge success. We treated over 200 patients in the clinic and applied fluoride treatments to almost 250 school children through our school outreach. It is exciting to see that outreach grow as we add a grade level each time we go. It is our hope that educating the students about the importance of dental hygiene will lead to life long habits for them and improve their overall health.
This year we also had some children from an orphanage come to the clinic for the first time and it was very rewarding to be able to give them the care they needed. This trip one of our interpreters Jorge got his new teeth and you can see how happy he is in the pictures. We also
were able to use our own equipment for sterilization this trip, almost exclusively, reducing our dependence on the hospital's central sterile.
