Another Day in the Jungle
Dentistry for All and Project Ix-canaan have expanded their partnership with a program to bring more extensive dental health to El Remate. Alex, who has worked for several years in the Ix-canaan library, has been hired to run the El Remate Dental Health Program.
Dentistry for All has been coming to the village for 1 or 2 weeks every spring to do cleanings, fillings and extractions for more than 350 people per week. With this expansion to the program, Alex will be going into the schools and groups around the village throughout the year, educating the kids and minimising their chances of future problems.
