Mexican Association of Periodontology (AMP) Supports Lifechanging Dental Outreach Programs in Mexico

Thanks to the tremendous involvement of local officials and citizens, such as Espita Mayor Cap. Erosa and Sr Raul Monforte, the McGill’s ‘Kindness in Action’ dental mission led by Dr Veronique Benhamou was a great success. The mission was created to provide free dental services to the local people of Espita, Yucatan, many of whom had never before had access to a dentist.  Over 700 patients were treated over the 10 days in Espita, representing an excellent outcome from this collaboration.

Adding significantly to the local support was the endorsement of the AMP, the Mexican Periodontology Association. Dr Miguel De La Isla, current AMP President, flew out from Guadalajara to Espita, Yucatan to personally welcome the Canadian group and ensure the first few days went smoothly.  His presence served to lend further credibility and support of this mission to the local people.

AMP member, Dr Mauricio Cemej, a Periodontist practicing in Mexico City, participated in this outreach mission donating two days of his time to the cause.  Working with the AMP Foundation, we hope to create a greater collaboration between the Canadian and Mexican dental communities through similar outreach programs across Mexico in the future. Forging friendships, exchanging protocols and developing shared experiences promise to have a lasting impact on all involved.
