When 2016 came to a close, Iglesia Gran Comisión (IGC) had completed fundraising and construction for our new Dental Clinic at the Volcano Children’s Development Center (CDC). We had hoped to open the Dental Clinic this month, but God has a different plan in mind.
A few different situations resulted in a lack of equipment in the Dental Clinic. As of now, we have a beautiful building, but no equipment. Once again, we are trusting in God to provide above and beyond what we could ever hope for or imagine.
Building and equipping the Dental Clinic on the Volcano is imperative to the health of each child at our Center. Diseased, crooked or missing teeth or a misshapen jaw can interfere with their speech and make chewing food properly difficult and painful. Periodontal disease can lead to other health problems including heart complications, strokes, diabetes complications and respiratory issues.
Many children simply do not know how to take care of their teeth or that they even should. For generations, the people in the Volcano village have ignored their dental needs and those habits have been passed down and are now the habits of the children at the Center. It is our dream to provide much needed dental care for the children of the CDC and the surrounding community. We are hoping that by remedying current problems and teaching dental hygiene, our children will have a bright future with even more opportunities.
The cost of equipping the Dental Clinic is $18,067. This amount covers major items such as a dental unit (armchair and lamp), as well as periodontal and diagnostic instruments. Our budget currently only includes one dental unit, but we are hoping to be able to have two. The building was constructed with the plan of two dental units. We are looking to get new or almost new equipment because as things will eventually require maintenance, if parts are difficult to find in the States, they will be impossible to find here in El Salvador. We can either have the equipment and tools shipped/brought here, or we can use financial donations to purchase items in country.
