Dental Care for Children Goes to Ensenada!

- posted by Lindsey Johanson at Tuesday, October 16, 2012

What a weekend!

We're still catching our breath from a whirlwind trip to Ensenada, Mexico this past week where the Dental Care for Children team set up camp for a free dental clinic.

  • Ensenada community center was transformed into a 13 chair dental clinic, fully staffed with 42 volunteers, dentists & dental students to help.

  • Free dental care was given to children, parents, siblings & the entire family!

  • 130 family members received free care! That means, over $110,000 worth of treatment, our best yet!

This clinic was truly magical. From a little boy beaming with excitement to get his decaying tooth pulled to a little girl so relaxed she fell asleep in the dental chair.. we saw it all. With so many volunteers willing to help, we were able to see each and every patient who walked into our clinic. Thank you to everyone who supported this clinic!

We'll be back in just two weeks to do follow up dental work for these families and to provide care for children of an Ensenada Elementary School with the Irvine Rotary Club. We can't wait!

PS. Want to help give dental care to more children in need throughout the year? Consider making a donation to Dental Care for Children!

 

Get To Know Dr. Tozzer

Dr. Charles “Chuck” Tozzer began Dental Care for Children with a simple concept. Provide free dental services for children that didn't have access to care. From a single clinic at an orphanage in Maneadero, Mexico, the organization now provides eight clinics a year in Mexico, the United States and Haiti.
