LOS BARRILES - Children’s Dental Program


EAST CAPE HEALTH CENTER has recently expanded our coverage area for the Children’s Dental Program. This year we have been to our local school in the East Cape covering the Kindergarten and Primary schools in Los Barriles, Buena Vista, Campamento, Las Cuevas, El Cardonel, San Bartolo, and the Ninos de La Paz Orphanage with our oral hygiene instruction program, oral exams and registration of the children for continued care..

We have screened over 500 children in 2011 so far and have been fortunate enough to have enough supplies for all the children, A BIG THANK YOU to the generous donors who made this possible by contributing the dental materials such as toothbrushes, toothpaste and floss.

East Cape Community Dental Clinic located at Plaza de Pueblo #1 has divided our days; Children's Dentistry with Dr. Veronica Tuchmann and Patricia Laguna on Fri and Sat and Adult Dentistry Monday -Wednesday with Dr. Renan Pier and Mary who also runs our Oral Hygiene Educational Program. So far this year we have provided FREE dental treatment to over 300 children.

To continue to this valuable program we need your continued support. Our nonprofit is low on toothbrushes, toothpaste, and cash donations. Remember if you use our Dental Clinic all of those donations keep our dental clinic alive and thriving, we appreciate you choosing our Dental Clinic for your convenience to help contribute to our program. For more information please go to our website at www.eastcapemedical
As well on the Medical side of our organization we have an ongoing Diabetes Program. Our success with this program has changed the lives of many local Mexican residents. Contributions of Glucometers and strips are greatly appreciated and cash donations go along way with the medical services, medication and laboratory we provide to the lower income residents.
I appreciate your support and want to extend my appreciation so we may continue these much needed programs.
Generous THANKS to all who believe in the Health and Wellness of our community.
