Spreading Smiles Worldwide: Myanmar Oral Healthcare Project

Mira Vista Country Club

Add to calendar

In February 2015, two El Cerrito High School Interact alumni (Cassarah and Cassandra Chu) helped lead a team of twelve, which included: dentists, dental assistants and volunteers on an oral health service trip to the country of Myanmar. The team’s efforts were focused on the town of Mindat in the Chin State, a highly underdeveloped region lacking dental clinics and knowledge of oral health practices. The team treated hundreds of patients, provided oral healthcare workshops to nearly one thousand children and adults, and distributed toothbrushes and toothpaste donated by the EC Rotary Club.
