Dental disease is said to be the most common disease on the planet. Dental caries along with gingivitis are rampant in less developed countries. The need is definitely there. Many missionaries have testified to the need of having to provide emergency dental treatment in their remote villages.
Gentle, compassionate dentistry offers an ideal environment to demonstrate love especially because of the great fear that is normally associated with going to the dentist. In addition, the A.R.T. non-tech dental treatment approach is gentle and one could almost say pain free.
Dentistry can open doors for ministry where otherwise they would be closed.
It is a reasonably inexpensive skill to acquire and deliver. It has been our priority to keep it as simple and inexpensive as possible in order to make it available to as many missionaries as possible.
It is a relatively easy skill to learn.
One can learn the essentials in only TWO WEEKS. It makes it most practical for missionaries on a tight time schedule.
It's very portable - the kit can be packed in a suitcase or backpack.
For Americans, the training program is conveniently located in the continental USA.
We offer a very flexible time table. Since the program is only TWO WEEKS, it can easily fit into one's furlough.
Providing dental care to people in need is most satisfying and rewarding. Having been involved in missionary dentistry for over a decade myself, I can truly attest to this.
It's an excellent way to help you remember the poor. Gal. 2:10
