International Outreach started four years ago. International Outreach provides AC work and dental cleanings in Belize. The hope is to expand and bring a medical team one day and to make visits more frequent.
People in Belize do not have access to dental care, and the majority of them have never had a cleaning or been seen by a dental professional. A team of dental hygienists and dentists provided dental cleanings to the people of Belize. Most of the cleanings done there are deep cleanings, which can cost over $1,000 in America. The team also enforces dental education to these patients and go over tips on how to brush, floss, and review nutrition with them. Since it is unknown when the next time they will receive cleanings, or if they ever will, the goal is to educate these patients with the necessary information so they can maintain oral health.
For more information about International Outreach, there is a meeting tonight, May 21 at 7 p.m. at His Church, 6300 Arden Rd. You can also support International Outreach through the firework stand located off of the Loop and South Washington and at the Sod Poodle game on July 20.
