what we do
Make a Miracle believes good oral care is pivotal to good health. In our best estimation, 9 of 10 people living in San Juan de Lurigancho and the hill communities of Peru do not go to the dentist for oral care. We periodically host dental clinics for children and have had an incredible response.
Our goal is to expand these clinics into a more permanent program. We will begin with restorative dentistry, including extractions, fillings, and antibiotics to control infection. Our next step will be to shift towards preventative care. With preventative care, we will lower the health risks associated with bad oral hygiene and reduce the amount of restorative dentistry needed.
