Without this program the communities of El Tigre and Xecnachavox located in the western Guatemala would not get the opportunity to see a dentist or learn about oral hygiene. This allows for early detection of health problems, which can be accompanied by prevention campaigns . Demo-graphic epidemiological data can be recorded and general health and dental care becomes more affordable and timely thus allowing it to be more efficient . This is not only a wonderful opportunity for the communities, but also the medical students involved.
