Challenge

The majority of the adult population in Pakistan and more than half the child population has dental decay; over 80% of the people over 45 years of age have periodontal disease, and more than 20% of the population over 60 is edentulous (means all teeth are missing). Unfortunately, Pakistan has one of the highest rates of oral cancer globally. A significant chunk of the lower class is affected by bottlenecks as dentistry is seen as a luxury worldwide, and hence it is not accessible to most people.

Solution

Oral health inefficiencies should be treated similarly to a health crisis. With the help of a highly sophisticated mobile dental unit, Al-Mustafa's Dental Team provides dental treatments and education regarding basic oral hygiene instructions in remote and less-privileged areas of Pakistan. The treatments include scaling, ART fillings, Root Canal Treatment, Extractions, Prostheses and removing every cause of pain. We plan to increase our reach by multiplying our current resources.

Long-Term Impact

Al-Mustafa aspires to set up and employ pure dental Hospitals in the majority of the cities and sub-branches in rural villages, providing free/discounted and necessary dental treatments throughout. These hospitals and clinics will ensure that our hard work and passion for community work continues for a very long time.
