DENTAL MISSIONDENTAL MISSION VOLUNTEERS – OUR CLINIC – PHOTOS & VIDEOS

 

In 2012 we opened the Rise Above Community Center in the Guadalajara area of Cebu City, and here we have a fully functional dental clinic, where 1 or more dentists can work for 1 day, 1 weekend, 1 week or for however long you desire, whenever you desire.

In May 2015, we added the Children’s Library, which has 3 nice aircon rooms on the second floor, meant as accommodations for volunteers either at the library or at the dental clinic. (More on that later)

The Dental Clinic is, as mentioned before, a fully functioning clinic with x-ray and all other needed equipment, which makes it possible for us to do any treatment from simple cleaning to complicated treatments such as small operations to remove molars etc.

Ida volunteered, not only for the Dental Mission, but also worked In the clinic both before and after the Dental Mission. Here is a comment from Ida…

“It was an eye opening, challenging and extremely rewarding experience to use my skills to help people who are in great need of dental treatment but cannot afford it. I can easily say that I have seen patient cases that most dentists will never see at home, and I have greatly improved my skills in both front teeth restorations and extractions. Having a base at the community center meant that I was always close to work as well as to my fellow Rise Above Foundation volunteers and staff members, and I became a part of the local community in a way that I would never do as a tourist. I highly recommend volunteering for Rise Above Foundation if you want to make a difference and discover the joy of making people smile again.”
