About Dental Brigades
In conjunction with, Medical Brigades, we travel to Central America to establish mobile dental clinics. Each of our community partners receives a brigade every 3-4 months where hundreds of patients are treated primarily with prophylactic cleaning, fluoride treatment and extractions, with hopes of launching full-fledged restorative care. GDB also focuses on prevention with dental hygiene workshops. Between brigades, our in-country team maintains relationships with the communities to provide follow-up to ensure any dental procedures were successful and to conduct community health worker trainings to empower local leaders to perpetuate a consistent level of dental care.
