Dominican Republic Medical/Dental Mission Trip


DOMINICAN REPUBLIC MEDICAL/DENTAL TRIP

Travel Dates : January 25 - January 30, 2017

Description

The HOH Medical/Dental Mission Trip is designed to bring dental and medical care to the very poor in rural villages. 

For those living in poverty, basic medical/dental care is often out of reach and many, even very young children, are in dire need of attention. Our dental team will perform tooth extractions, provide fillings and cleaning, and promote ongoing dental health by sharing important instruction in dental hygiene. 

Our medical team will minister to the sick - treating cuts, bruises, rashes, burns, infections, and other ailments as we seek to meet the needs of those in need. 

Our team will set up "shop" in the local church, where we will treat as many as possible in the few short days we are there. The church will have spread the word of our coming, inviting all who are in need to visit our clinic. We may also have opportunities to visit other villages.

Who Should Go

We are seeking dentists, doctors, nurses, dental hygienists, and other medical professionals who have a heart for people and a desire to use their skills to bring health and hope to the needy. Participation is not limited to those with medical training, however. We welcome teachers, pastors, business people, plumbers, stay-at-home moms, or anyone with a heart to serve.
