Education

Dental health is the primary focus for all of Smiles' education programs in underprivileged areas of the Dominican Republic. Patients arriving for treatment also receive information from dental professionals and health educators about personal dental care and prevention of dental diseases. Seminars are frequently presented to address topics such as domestic violence, bullying, children's rights, community sanitation, HIV/AIDS, nutrition, and breast feeding.

Youth

In addition, Smiles offers a summer camp program for youth at the Pantoja clinic where health education and leadership skills are promoted in an exciting learning environment. Two of our clinics are each equipped with a computer classroom where instructors provide children with computer training and health education.

The Smiles' education programs need your help to pay educators' salaries and buy supplies for our summer campers. New and gently used computers in good working condition are urgently required for the computer classrooms. Please help us make life healthier and happier for needy Dominican children by donating to our education programs.

Educacion

La salud dental es el objetivo principal de todos nuestros programas de educación en las zonas desfavorecidas de la República Dominicana. Los pacientes que llegan para recibir tratamiento también reciben información de profesionales y educadores de la salud dental sobre el cuidado dental personal y la prevención de enfermedades dentales. Nuestros educadores regularmente ofrecen seminarios para abordar temas generales como: la violencia doméstica, el acoso, los derechos del niño, el saneamiento de la comunidad, el VIH / SIDA, nutrición y la lactancia, entre otros. Además, “Sonrisas” ofrece un campamento de verano para jóvenes en la clínica de Pantoja donde se promueven las habilidades de educación sanitaria y de liderazgo en un entorno de aprendizaje estimulante. Dos de nuestras clínicas están equipadas con un aula de informática donde los instructores ofrecen a los niños y jóvenes formación en informática y en educación sanitaria. Los programas de educación necesitan su ayuda para poder pagar los sueldos de los educadores y comprar suministros para nuestros campistas de verano. Equipos nuevos o usados en buenas condiciones de trabajo se requieren con urgencia para las aulas de informática. Por favor ayúdenos a hacer la vida más sana y más feliz para los niños dominicanos necesitados donando a nuestros programas de educación.
