Dr. Astolfi Is Proud To Be A Part Of 1000 Smiles
This organization helps children in Jamaica get access to the dental care they need.
About 1000 Smiles
1000 Smiles is in it’s twelfth year of treating patients. As a third world country Jamaicans’ access to dental care is a huge problem. Less than 10% of Jamaicans have access to a dentist, leaving 90% without much needed treatment.
During the week of August 31-September 7, we were able to reach over 927 of children through patient dental education/oral hygiene instructions at 7 different elementary schools and distribute over 1200 toothbrushes and toothpaste to the children. Our team addressed the restorative, hygiene and extraction needs of 876 people this week alone.
Great Shape/1000 Smiles can always use your help: dentists, assistants, hygienists or laypersons all are welcome!
