Are you a dental professional interested in donating your time and services? See below for some of our upcoming group humanitarian missions.
Are you a scout, youth group or other humanitarian focused group? If so, contact us and let us know how your group would like to help. We have helped coordinate providing oral hygiene kits for thousands of children in need.
Every dollar donated will go towards bettering the lives of our patients.
(With the $100 donation you will ensure that a young or special needs child receives humane dental care under general anesthesia in a simple but effective healthcare facility in Guatemala. We currently work with anesthesiologists in Guatemala to provide discounted anesthesia care for patients who would not be able to cooperate otherwise. $100 is all it takes to ensure a healthy smile.)
Free t-shirt with every $150 dollar donation.

We stay in great places, eat super good food and serve A LOT of people. There is no shortage of teeth needing restorations, teeth needing extractions or calculus needing removal. With the equipment we have obtained over the years we are able to take digital radiographs, perform comprehensive dentistry and have two operating rooms and anesthesiologists available for the treatment of young and special needs patients. They are a humble and thankful group of people who always make you feel appreciated for your service.
We typically have about 25 members in the group. 6-7 of the group are dentists and the rest are hygienists, assistants and others in support roles.
Let us know what questions we can answer for you. We’d love to have you on one of our dental jornadas in The Land of The Eternal Spring!
