Dental Program

“Many of the problems I see did not start off as medical problems. They’re dental problems that turned into something worse because the people weren’t able to take care of them.” – A village doctor

The Bacaanda Foundation has responded to the need for dental care in remote areas by building regional dental clinics in the towns of San Felipe Lachillo and Santiago Xanica.

In keeping with our philosophy of community engagement both clinics have now been turned over to the local municipalities. Each community-operated dental clinic now treats hundreds of needy adults and children every year. A third clinic is in the very early planning stages.
