LEARN ABOUT OUR DENTAL CLINICS
The need for basic dental care in the Dominican Republic is overwhelming. Sowers of the Kingdom has partnered with Putnam Dental Missions of Brewster, NY to provide dental care to the small village of Palmarito. For one week a year, volunteers from Putnam Dental Associates, including Dr. Carl Ern, set up their portable equipment in the community church and open their doors to anyone needing care.
What was once extractions only has grown to include Xrays, fillings, root canals, cleanings and sealants. Children and parents are taught the importance of good oral hygiene and are sent home with a supply of toothbrushes, paste and floss after their visit. Often joining the Putman Dental team is Missionary Dr. Vanessa Nolasco from Jarabacoa, DR. Together, they work tirelessly to bring compassionate care to those in the most need.
