Sally Lloyd, Registered Dental Hygienist at Lifetime Smiles Dental Hygiene Clinic travelled to Venezuela January 2009 with KIA- Kindness In Action Dental Mission to provide much needed dental and dental hygiene treatment to children.
Delivering compassionate care while respecting the dignity of those in need
The objectives of KIA are as follows:
To provide dental health services, doing as much as we can with what we have.
To honor, support and empower those with less and assist them in becoming self-sufficient.
To educate and raise awareness of Developing World Issues.
We accept and work with the “Guidelines for Dental Volunteers” adopted by the FDI World Dental Federation 2005 Montreal General Assembly.
Kindness in Action welcomes new volunteers. Their only requirement is a sincere desire to want to help. Being entirely volunteer based, they need committed people to assist with everything from dentistry to translations to fund-raising. If this speaks to you – check out their website.
