Smiles on Wings R35 Dental Clinic
Smiles on Wings is committed self-reliance and has built a permanent dental clinic at the 35th Rajaprajanugroh School. The foundation of our permanent dental clinic in Khao Lak, Thailand was completed in the Fall of 2014. The Smiles on Wings team was able to treat 80 patients and complete 450 dental procedures in July 2015. With the help of our generous supporters, we were able to fully furnish the dental clinic in January 2016. With local Thai dentists working in the clinic, we are able to provide dental care and promote dental health education for thousands of children and villagers in Southern Thailand, the area that was devastated by the 2004 Southeast Asia Tsunami.
Mobile Dental Clinic
Our fully operational Mobile Dental Clinic consists of a 4WD vehicle that has the capability to traverse the mountainous northern region of Thailand. The vehicle is able to transport operational dental equipment and two operators to rural Thai communities. Additional volunteers travel by 4WD vehicles provided by the local Ministry of Public Health. Local hospital staff also utilize the equipment. The Mobile Dental Clinic serves hundreds of patients every year in the Mae Hong Son province.
