Five-Day Dental Clinic Serves 1400 Children

A group of volunteers led by Carol Martin held five days of dental clinics in February. The volunteers provided cleaning and fluoride treatment to over 1400 students, taught kids how to properly brush their teeth, and worked with a local dentist to provide extractions as necessary. The group also donated medical supplies to the Choluteca Hospital; a variety of school supplies and classroom materials to 19 under-funded area schools; and toys, toothpaste, and pencils to each of the children who participated in the clinic. The group visited schools in the communities of Las Marias, El Chapparal, San Antonio de Padua, San Isidro, and El Jicaro.
