From September 15-24, 2016, the Ecuadent Foundation and the Platinum Circle Dental Team traveled to Mompiche, in the province of Esmeraldas, one of the poorest provinces in Ecuador, for our 26th year of mission work. Over four and a half days our team treated a total of 849 children, 607 of which received dental treatment and 242 of which received pediatric care. A total of 3435 dental procedures were performed! Most of the children we treated were displaced survivors of the April 2016 earthquakes. Ecuadent Foundation again expresses our deepest gratitude to Platinum Fortune Foundation for partnering with us to support the September 2016 Dental Mission.
Ecuadent would like to thank the many donors and volunteers that made 2016 a successful year of service to the children of Ecuador.Three overseas missions, earthquake relief efforts as well as other outreach to the disadvantaged children of Ecuador has kept the Ecuadent Foundation busy and active, as we now enter our 27th year of outreach to the “niños y niñas,” the boys and girls, of Ecuador. Thanks to you, thousands of procedures and hundreds of children received care. There is still so much more to be done and we are already planning ahead to when we can next return to with our teams doctors, dentists and support staff.
