The lack of basic dental care in East Africa means that when the people have a problem the tooth is just pulled.

A group of dentists and dental hygienists travel to Uganda and Rwanda to train local health workers so they can provide dental treatment and education to those in these very poor countries.

They bring donated instruments and supplies, and give free treatment to hundreds who have no other access to care.

The next trip by these volunteers is January 23, 2014. Your donation, whether large or small, will help cover some of the travel, lodging and meals expenses.
