Since 2007 Mission Save a Smile has been returning twice a year to several Indigenous communities in Panama to develop a sustainable program with a focus on preventative and restorative care.
Serving the Embera and Kuna communities of Panama.
" BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN THE WORLD.".
YOU CAN HELP BY PARTICIPATING IN A FUTURE VOLUNTEER TRIP.
Our goal will be to share educational, preventative and restorative dentistry with the impoverished communities existing outside the boundaries of a traditional dental clinic. As the number of dental professionals interested in outreach programs grows, the network of support will grow exponentially. We are looking for dental professionals who would like to travel with a greater purpose.
YOU CAN HELP BY SUPPORTING THE AVAILABILITY OF MOBILE EQUIPMENT.
At present our reach is limited by the availability of necessary mobile equipment and supplies. Many of the marginalized communities in Central America are located in areas where the availability of clean drinking water is a problem, let alone access to health care. With no facilities within miles, mobile equipment can bring care to the underserved. With recent advances in portable dental equipment, most phases of dental care can be completed in the field.
YOU CAN HELP SAVE A SMILE.
By participation and supporting Mission Save a Smile you will be helping to spread a contagious desire to improve the oral health of those in the underserved populations of the world.
