VOCO Dental Aid

VOCO Partners with Alliance for Smiles to Support Their Mission Trip to Ecuador


VOCO's contribution to the Alliance for Smiles mission in Guayaquil, Ecuador, is a testament to the collaborative efforts that make such humanitarian work possible. The donation of 250 doses of Profluorid Varnish was a significant aid in the mission's success, allowing Mary Jensen, RDH, and her team to provide essential dental cleanings and fluoride treatments. These procedures are crucial in preventing tooth decay and promoting oral health, especially in communities with limited access to dental care.


Moreover, the team's efforts in oral care education are invaluable, as knowledge is a powerful tool in maintaining oral hygiene and preventing future dental issues. Education on proper brushing techniques, the importance of regular dental check-ups, and the role of diet in oral health can have a lasting impact on the community's well-being.


The work done by Alliance for Smiles aligns with their broader mission to repair children's cleft palate anomalies in under-served areas of the world. Their dedication to providing not only surgical interventions but also comprehensive care, including dental health, highlights the multifaceted approach needed to address global health disparities.


The gratitude expressed by VOCO underscores the importance of such missions and the difference they make in the lives of individuals and communities. The success of these initiatives is a collective achievement, reflecting the commitment of volunteers, the generosity of donors, and the resilience of communities they serve. Thank you to Alliance for Smiles and all involved for their wonderful work and the positive impact they continue to make.
