DENTAL TEAMS VOLUNTEERING FOR GUATEMALA
An opportunity to volunteer your services in Guatemala, in association with the Arizona Dental Association, Rotary and the International College of Dentists
In July, Coatepeque-Colomban Rotarians, the town of Colomba and Spirit Education Foundation (Secular) came together for the dedication of the new clinic in Colomba. At this time, we also had our third group of dental volunteers, the first in the new clinic. Our mission is to provide low cost Ė free dental care to Coatepeque-Colomba Guatemala Regionís poor and Spirit Education Foundation's scholarship students.
See our website at http://www.dentalcare-volunteers.org for information about the clinic and to apply to join us.
We have five dental and 4 hygiene chairs in the clinic to provide delivery of dental care and oral hygiene. We also try to educate the Guatemala regionís poor about oral hygiene, during our twice annual trips.
We are now working with a rather large Rotary grant to complete the equipment acquisitions. This will be fully functional for the dental volunteers.
Teams will be made up of professionals and students, working with Guatemalan students. We, of course, also accept donations and supplies.
