PDG Charlie Clemmons from District 5890 is requesting for any dental equipment available to furnish a complete operatory for a dental clinic in Swaziland. The clinic will not be mobile, all will be stationary. Please reply to this post or contact PDG Charlie Clemmons at email@example.com with any available equipment or information.
Lack of oral hygiene and untreated tooth decay can lead to much more serious conditions such as noma. Mercy Ships dental teams work to improve oral health by providing dental hygiene education and training of local personnel.
Mercy Ships conducts free mobile dental clinics for the poor. Extractions are a common procedure – a last resort after years of poor dental hygiene and the lack of routine dental care. Relieved from infected or rotting teeth, patients often hug dental staff in gratitude. When possible, dentists give fillings and do restorative work to brighten smiles and avoid future extractions.
Many people in developing countries have never had the privilege of seeing a dentist. Dental help is almost non-existent in much of West Africa, and, if it is available, the majority of the population cannot afford it.
