Ladakh, India Initiative!

Ladakh, India Clinics: Our newest location — Clinics are held in the spectacular town of Leh, situated at 12,000 feet at the base of the towering Himalayas. Our local partner, the Ladakhi Lion’s Club hosts the clinic in rooms that are converted to dental clinics with the use of portable dental units, air compressors and generators.

Children in Ladakh come from widely diverse backgrounds, but they share a lack of access to any type of preventive dental care. Our clinics provide children with an exam, cleaning, and full care as needed including fillings, extractions and anterior composite restorations. Each child receives a toothbrush and oral hygiene education. Each school population is treated every two years to ensure continuous care and education for each child.
