Grins for Guatemala

After Shari, our office manager, and her husband were called to serve as a mission president in Guatemala, Dr. Lohner and Dr. Jimmer became aware of the huge need for dental treatment among the people in this Central American county.

In Guatemala, there is only one dentist for every 12,000 people, while here in Utah County, there is one dentist for every 800 people. In the U.S., an extraction will cost about $150 to $200. That same extraction procedure will cost the average Guatemalan two months of wages.

Our dentists and team are proud to work with the Hirsche Smiles Foundation to travel to Guatemala in March and bring dental services to the rural villages and orphanages there. Many of the people we will see have never met a real dentist in their entire life.

All the money donated goes directly to the Hirsche Smiles Foundation and will be used to fund our trip, paying for the needed equipment and dental supplies as well as housing and transportation. If you would like to make a donation, please contact Lexington Heights Dental at 801-756-2006. We are grateful for your support and appreciate your decision to help the people of Guatemala.
