Dental disease is the most rampant disease in the developing world, affecting 95% of the world’s population, WDR notes. They help fight it by supplying more than 400 dental teams annually to over 75 countries. One popular WDM program rents 10 large dental surgical kits for $5.00 per day plus shipping and insurance. The applicants wishing to receive them must be licensed dentists, and advance notice is appreciated. WDR’s mission warehouse inventory is posted on their website and updated weekly.
WDR’s founder, Dr. Ron Lamb, wrote Portable Mission Dentistry. His 377 page comprehensive book (2008 edition) is about providing dental services in overseas circumstances. 290 pages are about finding and using portable dental equipment. You can download it free in its entirety by going to “Book” on the WDR website. The website also has schedules of dental mission trips to various overseas locations.
