AFFORDABLE DENTAL CARE, ESPECIALLY RELIEF FROM PAIN,
SHOULD NOT BE A LUXURY.
He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap;
he seats them with princes and has them inherit a throne of honor. 1 Samuel 2:8
We have been honored to have Bertina James, a
resident of the Dental Nurse Practitioner training
program in Ganta, Liberia, in the clinic the last
two weeks. Bertina is about one and a half years
into her two year course and has already become
very proficient at extractions and basic fillings.
Bertina will swap places with her classmate in the
program, who is currently spending two weeks at
JFK, the large government hospital in Monrovia.
We are excited to see these practitioners who will
be able to provide affordable care to their people
for many years to come and increase access to
care in rural areas of Liberia. This is the solution
for many of the gaps that exist in dental care
around the world.
