WELCOME TO GFDHA.ORG

GLOBAL FOUNDATION FOR DENTAL HEALTHCARE AND AWARENESS, INC.

Global Foundation for Dental Healthcare and Awareness, Inc. has a mission to improve and maintain good oral and overall health to underprivileged children around the globe.  Our primary focus is to perform medical, preventative, and restorative dental treatments to children living in orphanage homes and remote village locations where access to medical and dental care is limited.

 

Throughout many third-world countries, dentistry is often one of the most overlooked areas in healthcare.  Individuals in these countries are in desperate need of our services.

 

Our vision is to transform the lives of the youth to ensure a healthier future.

All healthcare professionals, students and non-healthcare professionals are highly encouraged to step out of their comfort zone to experience the “healthcare world” in third-world countries.

WHAT WE PROVIDE

GFDHA provides the following services.

VISUAL ORAL SCREENING

Oral health is an integral part of overall health.  Unfortunately, many people do not have the resources to seek dental care.  Appropriate evaluation, treatment, and preventative measures are instituted during our visit to improve oral healthcare.

ORAL HYGIENE EDUCATION

Oral Hygiene education is learning the correct techniques to maintain good oral health. Using dental floss to remove the residual food particles, toothpaste containing fluoride on a soft toothbrush at a 45 degree angle for 2-minutes twice a day.

DENTAL PROPHYLAXIS

A dental prophylaxis is a cleaning procedure performed to thoroughly clean the teeth.  Prophylaxis is an important dental treatment for halting the progression of periodontal disease and gingivitis.

Periodontal disease and gingivitis occur when bacteria from plaque colonize on the gingival (gum) tissue, either above or below the gum line.

HALITOSIS PREVENTION

Halitosis is also known as having chronic bad breath.  This bad breath can result from poor dental health habits and may be a sign of other health problems. Bad breath can also be made worse by the types of foods people eat.
