Medical and Dental clinics are set up on Ambergris Caye and its neighboring islands, including the mainland of Belize.  Groups are assigned to each of these various clinics and a portion of each participant's trip may involve an overnight stay at one of these other locations.  The setting of the clinic sites vary from school classrooms to any open space available for our dental and medical work. Various clinic sites include Ambergris Caye, Banana Bank, Sarteneja, Caye Caulker and others.


Various Clinic Sites


We try to make the clinic set up as comfortable as possible.  As for supplies, each participant has to provide their own instruments and materials used.  A specialist is typically paired with a general practitioner prior to the trip so they can communicate with each other and share supplies during their week experience.

As mentioned earlier, one of the main goals of the trip is to practice dentistry and medicine in a spiritual way.  From a dental perspective, the focus is restorative and preventative dentistry.  From  a medical perspective, the focus is primary care medicine.

The last four years we have been fortunate to take dental technicians with us.  At the present time we have a considerable amount of laboratory equipment available for our use while we are there.  We replace as many anterior missing teeth as we can with removable appliances.



 

There is alot of equipment involved in restorative dentistry.  We take everything we need in order to see patient's.  There is nothing locally for us to use.  Because the Belize Mission Project has been in existence for so many years, we have begun to purchase our own equipment.

We now own our own dental chairs.  They are no more than glorified chase lounge chairs, but they are quite functional.
