Mobile Dental Clinic for Vayots Dzor Region
The Armenian Dental Society of California and The Paros Foundation have successfully partnered in order to help the mobile dental clinic bring dental care to poverty stricken communities throughout Armenia.
Dr. Viken Garabedian who has worked closely with Drs. Gary Kevorkian and Jack Bayramyan and the ADSC mobile clinic, is ready to tackle the challenge of bringing expanded dental health to the communities in Armenia’s Vayots Dzor region by adding a second mobile dental clinic. In partnership with ADSC, the Syunik Development NGO and The Paros Foundation, a second bus will be converted into a mobile dental clinic and serve the isolated and poverty stricken communities in Armenia’s Vayots Dzor region.
Many of the villagers in Vayots Dzor live only a few hundred meters from the Azeri Border. Many of the men in these villages serve in the army, protecting Armenia’s border. The harsh and isolated conditions in these areas has forced many of the residents to flee their homes and resettle in the larger neighboring cities.
$30,000 is needed to retrofit the bus with two dental chairs and the proper equipment. The monthly operating budget for the mobile clinic once it has been put into operation is $3,000 per month.

In advance of the official launch of the Mobile Clinic for Vayots Dzor, our team of Dentists and staff spent the day equipping the clinic and preparing it for the big day!
A big celebration was held to mark the official launch of the Mobile Clinic for the Vayots Dzor Region.
Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, the Mobile Clinic is currently not operating. As soon as it is safe to resume operation, our staff will, once again, tackle their important mission.
