We are excited to make you aware of an opportunity to assist with the establishment of a Dental Clinic in Cap Haitien. With your help, we plan to have the Dental Clinic operational by early November, 2018. Once operational, we will welcome Dental Teams from Canada to assist with dental services at the Clinic.
Need for a Dental Clinic -The dental clinic initiative is in recognition of the desperate need for dental care in Cap Haitien and in the surrounding remote mountainous regions in northern Haiti. The Dental Clinic will be established at the Empower Global compound where an existing Medical Clinic and Healthcare Training Program have been operating for several years.
Our Vision - To serve the local community by providing basic dental care services to those in desperate need and with little or no ability to pay. We also plan to conduct mobile dental clinics in surrounding villages and remote areas where very few people have never seen a dentist in their lifetime.
Our Goal - To train and work alongside Haitians who have received basic training in dental services. In the future, we would like to partner with local Haitian dentists to further educate those who will be providing ongoing dental care on a full-time basis in Cap-Haitien and in the surrounding communities.
Dental Program Leadership - Dr. Wesley Chan & Dr. Nicholas Teoh are two Canadian doctors spearheading this initiative in partnership with Empower Global. Both are volunteering their professional services and are very excited to work together to bring dental care to the destitute poor in northern Haiti.
