Loyola Dental Brigade Panama January 2013
Jan 05, 2013 - Jan 12, 2013

Dental Brigade volunteers will accompany a Medical Brigade in setting up temporary clinics in pre-identified communities in Eastern Panama to provide health care where access is limited. Each community receives a brigade every 3-4 months. Students on the brigade are given the opportunity to shadow licensed health care professionals while learning about local Panamanian culture. A typical Medical/Dental Brigade clinic consists of six stations: Intake, Triage, Consultation, Dental, Charla (health education), and Pharmacy. Each Dental Brigade will be accompanied by at least one Panamanian Dental Surgeon trained to provide immediate relief through dental extractions. Students will help perpetuate a sustainable dental initiative by providing preventative fluoride treatments, cleanings, and educational programs.
