What is Global Dental Relief (GDR)?
Global Dental Relief (formerly known as the Himalayan Dental Relief Project) was founded in 2001 by former Director of Colorado State Parks, Laurie Mathews, and dentist Andrew Holecek. After they recognized the "desperate need for dental care" in countries throughout the world, they knew they needed to get involved: "To date, through their combined efforts, more than 2,600 volunteers have provided over $35 million in donated care to more than 170,000 children."
Why is it Important to Support Organizations like GDR?
There are several reasons why Global Dental Relief works to provide dental care for children in under-served communities throughout the world. First, it is because of limited access to treatment: whether due to lack of dentists or finances, GDR relief is often the first dental care some children experience.
Another reason why the team and volunteers at GDR do what they do, is that children with healthy mouths tend to have a greater chance at a better life - without dental care, infected areas become constant sources of unnecessary pain and worry.
Working in teams of dental and non-dental professionals, GDR provides beneficial dental services such as:
In addition to the above services, after each visit children receive a new toothbrush and critical dental health education to take home with them.
