Because the number of dentists in Thailand is low compared to the population, rural communities often don't have access to dental care. Our project visits these rural areas with a focus on giving children access to quality dental care. In recent months our team traveled to many schools in the rural areas of Chiangmai (Borkhew, Maehia) and Nan province. The children we provided dental care to are from hill tribe families in typically very poor areas. Almost all of the kids we talk to in schools say they don't have a toothbrush in their home. We're thankful that we can visit them, provide them with dental care products, and teach them how to brush correctly in order to help them prevent cavities. We provide a dental checkup and send them home with toothbrushes and toothpaste. In recent months, our team was so glad to be able to give big, healthy smiles to over 800 kids who came down from mountain villages to join the dental care activities. Thank you for supporting our dental project in Northern Thailand!
