95% of the people of the world have mouth or dental disease making it the number one disease in the world. In Belize, 65% of the population is under the age of 16. Most children have never seen a dentist. and that goes for most adults, too. The rare few that can see a dentist have to travel sometimes 100's of miles by bus which is very expensive. Most people have never seen a dental hygienist either, which is important for cleaning and teaching dental care.
We have all of the equipment and instruments that we need. We also have 5 mobile units to take dentistry and dental hygiene into the villages surrounding Independence Village. It has all been donated and we need to put it into action by meeting the needs of the people in Belize. We are now seeking monthly supporters to help carry the monthly operating cost of this important medical ministry as well as we are seeking medical professionals to come and serve in both career and short-term opportunities.
