    while earning Fellowship in the International Dental Implant Association
    Dr. Goran Topalo, a dentist at Plum Grove Dental in Palatine, recently returned from a trip to the Dominican Republic, where he served as a team member for dental missionary. Dr. Topalo joined an international team of highly trained implant surgeons in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, to offer their services to Dominican people who otherwise could not afford them. The team was led by a chief dental implant instructor, professor Dr. Arun Garg, a world renowned maxillofacial surgeon and one of the top implantologists in the world. Dr. Topalo and colleagues performed numerous surgical dental procedures, with main emphasis on dental implants, bone grafting and extractions. Each dentist from a group of about 20 was able to provide more than 36 hours of surgery over three days. The group as a whole provided free care in an excess of 1 million dollars during their mission.

    "The experience was most gratifying and truly amazing. For a dentist, nothing is more rewarding than helping people in need to restore the functionality of their bite, lessening inherent pain and providing them with the ability to smile, with confidence. It was a tremendous honor and privilege to work with and learn from such a distinguished group of experts in our field. As a result, I was able to employ my surgical skills that I've spent extensive time training for."

    At the University Clinic, where treatment took place, patients formed long lines to be seen, some waiting for many hours. Dr. Topalo was very moved and deeply touched by the appreciation the Dominican people showed to the missionaries. "Patients were lined up each morning in front of the clinic and when the doctors arrived they were greeted by clapping hands and loud cheers. I felt like a professional athlete coming off a field, victorious. I have never witnesses anything like that and it was those moments that reinforced the significance of our mission and how much our free care meant to these wonderful, deserving people. It was touching and humbling at the same time. I hope to participate in many more volunteering trips with the group moving forward."

    Dr. Topalo was awarded a Fellowship in the International Dental Implant Association (IDIA) for his efforts.

    Corporate have Social Responsibility (CSR) targets to help improve community living. In India, though the corporates understand their accountability towards the society and are willing to take initiatives for the betterment, it becomes difficult for them to reach the grassroot level.

    Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has acquired new dimensions in the recent years. Today, companies are proactively taking up this good hearted investment and giving a social value to all their business endeavors.

    In India, though corporate have a strong will to dedicate their resources for a social cause, they find it difficult to reach the right people considering the demography and diverse social problems of the country.

    We thus join hands with the corporates to help them advance their welfare initiatives to the needy families and save on their time and human resources. We help the corporates meet their Corporate Social Responsibility targets through NGOs with expertise in the respective field.

    The very foundation of TCF was laid on the realization of a group of young corporate professionals that it was their corporate social responsibility to give back to the society.

    Achieve your Business Social Responsibility Goals
    Support some of our programs and social service initiatives.
    Adopt a child, family, school, or a village to meet you social responsibility.
    Corporates can sponsor a vocation training program through our ‘Sponsor a Skill’ drive.
    Buy greeting cards from our partner NGOs.

    With Corporate Social Responsibility in India having acquired a new dimension in the recent years, more and more companies are increasingly realizing that it is a good hearted investment, which brings manifold benefits to the company. Thus, all CSR activities are being designed in alignment with the corporate business strategies.

    Once you register with us for your CSR activities, you can come online at any time even after years and get the collated record of all the work done by you and all the people who have benefited from your support.

    Where There Is No Dentist
    by Murray Dickson
    First edition 1983. Fifteenth updated printing, July 2012. 238 pages, paperback, illustrated
    English ed. ISBN: 978-0-942364-05-7

    Community health workers, educators and individuals from around the world use Where There Is No Dentist to help people care for their teeth and gums. This book's broad focus makes it an invaluable resource.

    The author uses straightforward language and careful instructions to explain how to: examine patients; diagnose common dental problems; make and use dental equipment; use local anesthetics; place fillings; and remove teeth. There is also a special chapter on oral health and HIV/AIDS, which provides the dental worker with a detailed, well-illustrated discussion of the special problems faced by people living with HIV/AIDS, and appropriate treatment.

    The 2012 edition of Where There Is No Dentist features a new section on how to do Atraumatic Restorative Treatment (ART), a permanent way to fill cavities without the use of a dental drill that was first pioneered in Tanzania in the mid-80s and is now used by health workers and dental workers in many parts of the world. We have also updated the Information on other training materials, resources, and where to get dental supplies. This book is an important companion to the 2011 printing of Where There Is No Doctor.

    What people have to say about Where There Is No Dentist:

    "By giving a well-balanced mixture of illustrations and simple, succinct text in layman's terms, the book provides valuable, hands-on advice for the most important oral health issues: oral health promotion in the community and basic oral care in low-resource settings." - Habib Benzian, World Dental Federation (FDI)

    "As a nurse educator, I can say that the Where There Is No Dentist text by the Hesperian Foundation, has been an excellent health resource text for us. Both its content, its diagrams and the educational level it was written for, have proven to be extremely useful. The content has been very practical in teaching lay Brazilians about oral hygiene and health care, as well as for identifying when oral and dental health problems exist and when and how to refer people to a dentist. It is rare that excellent health texts like this are written for the lay individuals." -Janette Ryan, Health Director, Project AmaZon Mission [PAZ], Brazil

    Ende der Einsätze in Ocotal

    Deutlich schwerer gefallen als die nur logische Schwerpunktverlagerung unserer Arbeit auf den Philippinen von Manila nach Mindoro ist uns folgende Entscheidung: Ab Mitte des Jahres werden wir keine Médicos Alemanes mehr nach Ocotal entsenden. Dank des Teams vor Ort, dank der vielen Einsätze von Humanmedizinern und Zahnärzten und dank der guten Koordination von Katrin Hennings und Reinhart Bein gemeinsam mit dem Zahnarzt Walter Schweitzer wurde im Norden von Nicaragua seit 2004 vielen Menschen geholfen, die kaum Zugang zu medizinischer Hilfe gehabt hätten, wären wir nicht vor Ort gewesen. Und auch wenn die Situation der Armen dort nicht so dramatisch wie in Asien und Afrika ist, gibt es doch echte Not. Andererseits haben wir uns aber für die Projekte auf den Philippinen, in Sierra Leone, Indien, Kenia und Bangladesch im Rahmen der Umsetzung unserer Strategie „Helfen und Schulen, damit die Hilfe bleibt“ für die nächsten Jahre sehr viel vorgenommen. Um diese Ziele zu erreichen, müssen wir unsere Kräfte und unsere finanziellen Mittel bündeln, und so haben wir uns schweren Herzens zu diesem Schritt entschieden. Und welche Hilfe bleibt in Ocotal? Auf das, was zahnmedizinisch erreicht wurde, können wir aufbauen. Die Zahneinheit in Ocotal wird unter Leitung eines nicaraguënsischen Zahnarztes auch in Zukunft unseren Patienten zur Verfügung stehen. Im Januar wird Harald Kischlat vor Ort sein, um gemeinsam mit Katrin und dem Team zu überlegen, welchen Input wir im humanmedizinischen Bereich noch geben können, damit unsere Patienten auch über die direkte Anwesenheit der German Doctors hinaus Anlaufstellen haben.

    Aus Freude am Helfen

    Seinen ersten Einsatz leistete der Zahnarzt Dr. Carsten Wenzel 2010 in Ocotal in Nicaragua. In den 90er Jahren bereiste er das Land als Tourist – mit German Doctors e.V. versorgt er notleidende Menschen mit Zahnproblemen.

    „Ich weiß nicht, warum ich gerade hier in Deutschland mit einem intakten sozialen Netz und seinen individuellen Möglichkeiten aufgewachsen bin. Aber ich fühle mich genau deshalb verpflichtet, in einem anderen Land, wo es solche Voraussetzungen und Möglichkeiten nicht gibt, zu helfen. Die Dankbarkeit der Menschen wiegt die Anstrengungen eines solchen Einsatzes mehr als auf. Und ich gehe am Ende des Einsatzes mit dem Gefühl, etwas wirklich Sinnvolles gemacht zu haben. Ist man einmal damit „infiziert“ kenne ich keinen, der es bei einem einzigen Einsatz belassen hat.“

    Mindanao ist mit einer Bevölkerung von ca. 22 Mio. und einer Fläche von 61.077 m² die zweitgrößte Insel der philippinischen Inselgruppe. Die Bevölkerung außerhalb der großen Städte lebt von Landwirtschaft und an der Küste von der Fischerei. Die Projekte der German Doctors liegen im Wesentlichen in den Provinzen Misamis Oriental und Bukidnon im Norden und der Mitte der Insel. In unserem Einzugsgebiet leben über zwei Millionen Menschen, viele von ihnen ohne ärztliche Versorgung und unterhalb der Armutsgrenze.

    Unsere Arbeit unterstützen unsere fest angestellten Mitarbeiter, freiwillig arbeitende „Volunteer Healthworker“ und staatlich angestellte Hebammen, die in kleinen Gesundheitszentren basismedizinische Versorgung anbieten.

    Ocotal in Nicaragua

    Nicaragua gehört zu den ärmsten Ländern der Welt. Nach Einschätzung des Human Development Index leben 42,5 % der Bevölkerung in Armut, in den ländlichen Regionen steigt diese Anteil auf bis zu 70 %. Nicaragua ist damit nach Haiti das zweitärmste Land Lateinamerikas. Die Gründe der schlechten Wirtschaftslage sind vielfältig: Neben geschichtlichen Faktoren, einseitiger Wirtschaftsstruktur und jahrzehntelanger Oligarchiewirtschaft spielen auch häufige Naturkatastrophen wie Erdbeben, Wirbelstürme und das Wetterphänomen El Niño eine gewichtige Rolle.

    Die Arbeit der German Doctors konzentriert sich seit einigen Jahren auf Bergdörfer um Ocotal, einer entlegenen Region im Norden Nicaraguas. Zunächst lag der Schwerpunkt unserer Arbeit in Managua, doch nachdem sich die generelle medizinische Versorgungslage der Menschen dort verbessert hatte, beschlossen die German Doctors 2009, sich mit ihrer Hilfe auf die verarmten Bauern im Norden des Landes zu konzentrieren

  • Thema von carlos im Forum Jamaica

    We all aspire to become dentists, but after graduation our paths will diverge in many directions. My dream is to establish a volunteer dental clinic in the Philippines. As a junior in high school, my family went on a dental mission trip to Manila, Philippines. We brought instruments, a lawn chair, flashlights, and did screenings on children within the basement of a church. This eye-opening experience solidified my commitment to pursue dentistry. Since then I’ve had a desire to return to the Philippines on my own dental mission.

    In my second year of dental school, I had the privilege to participate in a Jamaican mission trip through the Christian Dental Society, lead by Drs. Jim Carney from Illinois and Bill Griffin from Virginia. I was inspired not only by the number of lives we touched, but also how established the dental clinic was. The Helping Hands Dental Clinic in the parish of St. Elizabeth in Hopewell, Jamaica is equipped with eight fully functional dental chairs, five additional portable chairs, an air compressor, vacuum pump and just recently a digital radiograph system.

    Dr. Jim Carney, Dr. Sue Carney and their daughters

    Establishing a dental clinic is no easy feat. Dr. Carney went on his first Jamaican mission trip with the Christian Dental Society in 1994. While he was there, he spoke to a nurse and found a location for a permanent clinic within the local health center. Dr. Carney then acquired equipment from his wife Dr. Sue Carney’s work: ten dental chairs, five sterilizers, doctor and assistant stools, cabinets and hand instruments.

    Dr. Carney funds all his missions out of pocket. “Some ask how I can afford to do all of this and I say I can’t afford not to,” said Dr. Carney. The Christian Dental Society offers rental dental equipment at a fee, but all other expenses such as supplies, airfare and lodging are covered by volunteers like Dr. Carney.

    Connecting with local Jamaicans was key to establishing and sustaining these clinics. After the first clinic, other local nurses and pastors contacted him to do the same in their village. While venturing the south coast to find the greatest area of need, Dr. Carney was directed to Hopewell. There he met Pastor Rowe and they created the Helping Hands Dental Clinic, the largest of all seven clinics Dr. Carney set up. Pastor Rowe and her husband take care of patient registration and clinic maintenance. “They are both tireless workers and an integral part of the team,” says Dr. Carney.

    Besides working with Jamaicans, Dr. Carney brings his family, friends, assistants and even patients on missions. He also recognizes the support of neighboring dentists in his hometown that help him by covering his emergency patients while he is away. Dr. Carney also values working with the dental student volunteers and is “energized by the youth and the enthusiasm that students bring.” Likewise, dental students value both the clinical and spiritual aspects of the mission. “They spread the word of God at the beginning of each day, which was refreshing to the spirit,” says Ashley Dawson from Howard University College of Dentistry.

    Dental students who have volunteered with Dr. Carney tend to participate in future missions, including Daryn Lu, Oklahoma ’15, 2014-15 ASDA vice president. Daryn says, “Watching the clinic and the community grow each visit is the reason why students return to the Helping Hands Clinic.”

    With the responsibilities of work and paying student debt, when is the best time to participate or establish a mission? “Go as the spirit leads,” advises Dr. Carney. “Most people think they have to wait until they retire to do this type of thing, but they’re wrong.” Dr. Carney’s inspiration along with my experience to Jamaica are valuable lessons. I am more than excited to pursue a mission of my own.

    Palestine Trip
    Many people in the world cannot afford or simply do not have access to dental care and as a result they will often suffer from tooth ache and infection of the moth.

    During December 2014 we are planning to travel to Palestine to provide dental treatments to children many of who are orphans. For most of the children this will be the only access they will have to dental treatments.
