Periowave Proudly Supports Dr. Veronique Benhamou’s Kindness In Action Dental Mission To Mexico

Dental problems can plague everyone in the world, especially those in low-income countries with little access to dental care. In fact, up to 90% of cavities in children living in third world countries go untreated. Despite the good intentions of local governments to address this problem, ~75% of them do not have the funds to support essential dental services, and many patients go untreated. Fortunately, Dr. Veronique Benhamou of McGill University is leading a team of 14 dental professionals to address this problem.

Embarking on January 24th, Dr. Benhamou and her team of dentists, hygienists, and assistants will be headed on a 2 week “Kindness in Action” mission to Yucatan, Mexico. The goal of this mission is to provide world-class dental care to 600-700 patients in Espita, Holca, and surrounding villages; many of whom have never received dental treatment before. Here’s a video of Dr. Benhamou from her Kindness In Action trip to Peru a few years ago.
