Mayana Community Dental Camp
In 2019 our team began to collaborate with some communities in the Great Rift Valley, in the far north of Kenya, to be able to offer a solution to the dental discomfort of its inhabitants.
With the help of Dr. Ibrahim Umuro, director of the Hospital of Laisamis, province of Marsabit, we managed to create dental campaigns that would take place every three months and that would include local dentists.
Later with the collaboration of the UoN (University of Nairobi School of Dental Sciences) the students would begin to join the project as volunteer dentists always guided by a local or foreign doctor with a dental license in force in Kenya.
Occasionally we have collaborations from other areas of health as physiotherapists, since they can help us work the soft structures that surround the Temporo-Mandibular Joint, often a cause of pain in the mouth.
