Ensuring permanent access to dental care
Providing immediate help to people who are suffering is, of course, at the heart of Dentistes Sans Frontières’s interventions. But beyond these short-term missions, the objective is also to ensure field partners become autonomous, so they can permanently provide dental care themselves at a low cost.
To achieve this, Terre Sans Frontières and Dentistes Sans Frontières set up permanent dental clinics wherever possible, especially in regions with little or no access to this kind of health service.
These projects require equipment, materials and supplies, which are shipped by container. Dentistes Sans Frontières then sets up the clinic and trains resources.
