Dental Care for Children

Providing free dental care for children in need.

Haiti Clinics

Our work in Haiti

There is an abundance of need for dental care among the Haitian community, where many children have not seen a dentist in years, if ever. In recent years, Dental Care for Children has expanded their dental relief efforts to several orphanages in Les Cayes, Haiti, with volunteer trips to orphanages two to three times per year. On these extended trips we are able to several hundred children over the span of a couple days.

It is not uncommon for children and parents to camp out for several days awaiting our arrival at the community centers and orphanages where clinics are held. In one heart-breaking instance, a woman and her child walked over 5 miles barefoot with rotted teeth and a swollen mouth seeking help.

There is no doubt there is an immense need in these communities but with the help of volunteer dentists, students and community members, we are able to make sure that each and every child that seeks our help is seen.
