DENTAL MISSION FOR CHILDREN

www.dds4kids.org

VIETNAM PROJECT

 

We hope to bring free dental services and dental health education to the children and adults living in different parts of Vietnam.  By providing dental treatment we can remove pain and suffering caused from tooth infection.  By providing dental health education we can teach our patients how to take care of their own dental health and prevent dental diseases and pain in the future.
