What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

CLINIC

On October 5, 2015, the doors were opened and the Global Outreach Mission Clinic started to serve the dental needs of the region. Within a short period of time, word of mouth had spread that the clinic was open. Committed to holistic ministry, clients of the clinic are served by dedicated followers of Christ who seek both the physical and spiritual wellbeing of those they come in contact. Fully equipped with a dental lab, in-clinic accessories and mobile units, the dental ministry seeks to serve those who come through its doors and those in villages who cannot visit the clinic.

CLINIC STATISTICS

Previously, access to affordable dental care was very limited and people sought care only on an as needed basis. 51% of new patients seen at GHSA Dental Clinic had not seen a dentist in over 2 years, and 76% of new patients' previous dental visit was problem focused. After 16 months, the clinic has over 2,000 registered patients and sees average increases of 100+ patients monthly. A volunteer Dental Director manages the clinic and serves as the only dentist. The dental clinic employs three local Belizeans that have been trained as dental assistants and patient care coordinators. Due to the growth of the clinic, the clinic requires additional employees to improve efficiency.

JOB DESCRIPTION

SUMMARY DESCRIPTION:
