Our students and members of the faculty were among a team of 32 dental and health care providers from Las Cruces and throughout New Mexico who traveled to India to provide free dental services. Your donations help us provide preventive dental hygiene services as well as dental exams and restorations to children from four different schools, including a school for children with special needs and some geriatric patients in the city of Shahdol.
Together we served 508 patients who received treatment, 270 children received full services including preventive dental care, exam and cleaning, 33 of these children were children with special needs from a local school and more than 3,500 children received oral hygiene instruction.
The following are some pictures from our trip. Enjoy!
