Dental Statistics

Review dental stats from past mission trips.

Dental Statistics

168 Patients were treated during the mission 2013 (108 women and 60 men) who received 219 treatments.  

 

As always, there were more female patients as male.  39 were children with 9 in the 0 to 5 years old bracket and 30 in the 5 to 12 years old. 12  were teens 12 to 17 years old.

We still continue to make great emphasis on prevention; maybe one of the successes of this year was the decrease of extractions versus last year. Many of them understand that their dental pieces can be salvaged.

The number of restorations has increased, many people to see us from very far away so we can treat them

The people that were working with me during the "Mission" were of tremendous help, David and Anna Elise, as well as Dr. Will Perez. 

During the “Mission of Miracles” we visited 5 communities; we had about the same amount of patients in each of those communities.
