LIFESmiles Belize Dental Mission Trip

Belize LIFESmiles Dental Mission Trip

In March of 2020, Dr. Dennis Garpetti and Dr. Brock Hyder are embarking on a dental mission trip to the Ambergris Caye region of Belize. They will be providing dental care to the children of this community.

Our staff would like to accompany the doctors to provide our services. The doctors are generously providing housing and meals for our staff, so the funds that are raised will go towards our team’s airfare. Anything above our goal will allow us to provide much-needed supplies.

We believe in giving our unique care to those in need where we can. Many of us have participated in free clinics around the Treasure Valley and various parts of the world, but now have an incredible opportunity to offer our health services in Belize.

Dental volunteers and doctors from around the world will be providing free dental services. Volunteers provide dental cleanings, sealants to prevent cavities, dental fillings, and fluoride varnish. They also encourage children to brush their teeth twice a day and provide oral hygiene instructions. After their checkup, the children will receive a toothbrush, toothpaste, and other goods to help them take care of their teeth.

Our dentists not only want to help teach the children of this community how to take care of their teeth, but they also want to encourage them to receive dental care before emergency treatment is needed. The clinic where Dr. Garpetti and Dr. Hyder will be traveling to is fully equipped with modern dental equipment and supplies to ensure that the children are getting the right dental care.

Any amount you are willing to give is gratefully appreciated! You can donate to our GoFundMe.

If you choose not to donate through GoFundMe, feel free to stop by our Boise, ID office or any U.S. Bank Branch to contribute. Contact us for more information. Stay tuned for raffles, auctions, and other exciting fundraising events. Our entire team looks forward to the opportunity of changing young lives and helping this community!
