Chicago Dentist Treats Over 100 Womenby Stacy Harris on 06/05/14
Kavi Patel, a dental student in Chicago, provided dental services for nearly 150 women and children in Kenya. Kavi plans to visit Nairobi every year to follow up on her new patients.
Most children in the slums simply do not brush their teeth. At times the teeth were so dirty that Kavi could not tell if there was a cavity. Brushing your teeth is considered a luxury for those making $1 - $2 per day. So all the toothbrushes and toothpaste donated by FICCS came in handy.
