Final Day

Final Day

In just four days, this team treated over 1,150 patients. The dentist pulled 90 teeth and 40 prescription glasses were provided.  School children all had flouride, dental education, and eye exams. Dental follow up will  be done by Honduran dental health professionals. This was an extremely productive trip!
Thanks to all the volunteers who committed time and resources to this project.
