Mission Trip to Belize

In March 2017, seventeen students, four dental hygiene faculty, two dentists, and two oral surgeons participated in the Dental Health Study Abroad in Belize. We stayed in San Pedro, Belize for six days, providing dental care at the Holy Cross Anglican School for children ages 5-13 and at the Poly Clinic, providing care for both children and adults. We saw 72 patients, completing 43 cleanings, 112 fillings, 18 extractions, and 10 sealants. Additionally, we went to 3 elementary schools and provided oral health education and fluoride varnishes for 500 children.
