Jungle Dentistry – Relieving Pain in Nicaragua @ Improve Your Smile, Woodford House Dental Practice, 162 High Road, E18 9EF
Sunday October 7 @ 12:15 - 14:00Free
Ever wondered how dentistry is practised in the remote locations of the world? Tim Smith, an elder at Latchett Church, every year takes a team of volunteer dental professionals to parts of the world that no drill has previously reached. Although from a dental family, Tim is not a qualified dentist himself but has led teams of professionals to the remote jungle villages of eastern Nicaragua carrying out emergency dentistry, supported by the Peace and Hope Trust. He will tell you something about the practical difficulties they encounter and the adventures they had last year in the Nicaraguan jungle.
The event is being hosted by Improve Your Smile at its dental practice opposite Tesco Express on the High Road ….but the only filling required will be the consumption of the refreshments provided.
This is a free event but space is limited and you must pre-book your tickets through Eventbrite.
