Mobile Dental Clinic 2018/19

Description

The Armenian Dental Society of California has partnered with The Paros Foundation in order to help its mobile dental clinic bring dental care to poverty stricken communities throughout Armenia.  Dental hygiene is commonly overlooked in many of these communities due to several reasons. Dental supplies and dental care are either very hard to find or too expensive for residents in these villages to afford.

Jack and Azniv Bayramyan and Family have generously funded a challenge matching grant to support this project since its relaunch in 2016. Sponsorship of this project will help raise the funds needed to keep the mobile clinic on the road providing its mobile services. Two dentists from Armenia travel along with the mobile clinic and provide dental care for village residents. Dentists from the US will have the opportunity to join the two local dentists on a volunteer basis. $2,500 will help keep the mobile clinic working for one month. Dental care provided by the mobile clinic will include basic child oral care and education, cleanings, fillings and other basic care.

Thank you to all our donors, we have met our fundraising goal.

The Need
Dental supplies and dental clinics are very hard to find or too expensive for residents living in Armenia’s remote and/or poverty stricken villages. This can cause a lifetime of dental problems and oral disease. Residents living in these areas are in need of dental care in order to be able to prevent serious dental issues in the future.
Short Term Impact
Residents of remote and poverty stricken villages will be visited by the mobile dental clinic and receive basic dental care. In addition, two dentists, one assistant and a driver work on the clinic all from Armenia, and have the opportunity to work alongside volunteer dentists from the United States.
Long Term Impact
Residents of remote and poverty stricken villages will have a decreased chance of tooth decay and serious oral issues in their future.
Sponsors Benefits
Your donation to sponsor the Mobile Dental Clinic will be recognized on The Paros Foundation website and in all appropriate press related to this important project.
