There is no regular dental care available locally in south east Haiti. People throughout the area require dental health education and prevention treatment such as sealants, extractions and restorations.
In response to locally identified priorities, HMMW has been working with Wisconsin based volunteer dentists who possess many years of experience establishing dental health programs in other regions of Haiti to begin to build a dental health program in Thiotte. To date over 700 dental services have been performed.
HMMW is also reaching out to Haitian dentists from elsewhere within the country to help meet local need.
