Since 1987, faculty and students from the University of Florida College of Dentistry have made an annual mission trip to Las Matas de Farfán in the Dominican Republic. The rural area is very remote and residents have extremely limited access to dental care. In August 2010, Dr. Klose a student dentist at the time, was selected as participant of the program and set off for the annual, week-long trip.
Dr. Klose and her classmates provided emergency dental treatment to those in need, ranging from young children to the elderly. Dr. Klose and her colleagues worked tirelessly to provide services such as dental extractions and fillings all without the luxuries of dental x-rays, chairs and suction. Groups traveled to local churches, schools and orphanages throughout the region. Dr. Klose also journeyed three hours into the mountains to treat patients, many of whom had never before seen a dentist.
In Las Matas de Farfán, the group was staged in the town center with generators and portable dental units so they were also able to provide restorative dental treatment. Dr. Klose and her teammates were proud to have treated more than 600 deserving patients during this week-long trip.
