Another Record-Breaking Year for Annual Dental Clinic
Over Labor Day weekend, Doctor Chuck Tozzer’sDental Care for Childrenmobile clinic swept into Les Cayes, Haiti to hold their annual clinic for Espwa children, families and the surrounding community.
In 2.5 full days, Dr. Tozzer's dental "A-Team," as he likes to call them, saw 397 people in all - breaking their old record by 50 patients!
They served 269 resident children and Espwa staff members, and another 128 individuals from the surrounding community, including families of staff members.
More than $200,000in dental services was provided by the group - an incredibly generous gift and investment in healthy futures.
Did you know... dental hygiene is critical for your overall health!
Your oral hygiene can be an indicator of your overall health. Keeping your mouth clean and healthy can help prevent the incidence of several different infections and diseases and can decrease your risk of serious health problems like heart attacks, strokes, and diabetes.
We are SO grateful for Dr. Tozzer and Dental Care for Children for theirbig hearts,their dedication through long, sweaty days, and their passionfor bringing big, pearly smiles to children at Espwa and all over the world.
