152 Kids Helped and $65,000 of Donated Dental Care in Haiti!

- posted by Lindsey Johanson at Monday, February 11, 2013

Results are in from the very first trip of the year and we couldn't be more excited about the progress made abroad at Hope Orphanage in LesCayes, Haiti!

If you follow DCFC's international work, you know we visit Hope Orphanage in Les Cayes, Haiti once per year. But this year, we're going to triple... yes triple, our trips to this beautiful orphanage to spread even more smiles and love to the 600 children residing there!

This Presidents Day weekend, Dr. Roger Abbott led a team of 12 dentists, assistants, and support volunteers from TLC Dental in Atlanta, Georgia to kick off the first trip of the year. Their team hit the ground running and they cared for an astonishing 152 kids during their visit! 

While many children did have the cavities and decay so frequently seen in this area, they were ecstatic to find that many of the children, especially the younger ones, had clean teeth!This is the ever so rewarding result of the continual care and preventative education these children have received over the past several years. This was made possible by YOU! Together we are making a difference! 

A huge thank you to our supporters and the TLC Dental Team for allowing us to give 3X the smiles this year!
