Dentistry

While access to general medical care can be difficult in southern Haiti, the lack of dentists and dental care is extreme. Our dental surgeons specialize in preventing and treating oral diseases which, if left uncared for, can impact the whole health of the patient.

While access to general medical care can be difficult in southern Haiti, the lack of dentists and dental care is extreme. Our dental surgeons specialize in preventing and treating oral diseases which, if left uncared for, can impact the whole health of the patient.

Health Equity International has been providing comprehensive dental care to southern Haiti for more than 20 years. Before our program began, the vast majority of people in the region had never been to a dentist before and did not know how to properly care for their oral health. So, our dentist, Dr. Dorce Wilner, traveled to schools, churches, and other community spaces in the region to spread the word about the dental services available at St. Boniface Hospital. Thanks to this early advocacy work, thousands of patients visit us for dental services each year for everything from cavities and dental crowns to oral lesions.
