El Salvador 2016
ICD Fellows Dr. Stuart Loos (Canton, GA) and Dr. Dave Mason (Lafayette, GA) were part of the dental team that provided dental care to the underserved population of Citala, El Salvador. They worked closely with the mayor of Citala, as well as the 2030 Civic Club. Dental procedures provided were primarily extractions, amalgam and composite restorations, and root canals. The hygienists that accompanied the dentists did a phenomenal job with cleanings and scalings. When the work day was over, food and entertainment were provided by the local population, and great fun was had by all. Drs. Loos and Mason provided private schools with tutorials in oral health and the English language. Since Citala was close to the border of Honduras and Guatemala, guided excursions were possible and taken advantage of.
This presentation was delivered to the Global Health Student Association (GHSA).
