MONTERO MEDICAL MISSIONS – DENTAL CARE
The Montero Medical Missions dental project is created to treat and educate underserved communities regarding oral health.
Our volunteers are trained to identify symptoms of dental disease, clean and treat oral degeneration, and teach proper dental hygiene habits. We provide dental cleanings and minor reconstructive dental correction. Abroad, MMM visits communities and schools to educate on oral home care techniques, dietary effects, plaque control procedures, tobacco risks, and application of medicinal agents.
However, this education is only valuable if those receiving it are equipped with the proper tools to implement care. Through generous donations and support, we’re able to provide dental supplies to anyone who is in need of them.
Our goal is to create all of our international dental programs to be fully sustainable; providing consistent access to oral care and supplies.
Furthermore, the MMM dental project proudly serves vets free of cost at our quarterly Health Fair for Veterans program.
