Last month our local nurses and doctors, with the help of a volunteer doctor from Europe, visited the schools to give free checkups. The most prevalent problem encountered concerned the children’s mouths. About 50% of the kids had dental problems. There was also a fair amount that had lice or fleas as well. Fortunately there were not many bone problems to report. The clinic will have a dentist in house covered by Seguro Popular, but they do not expect him/her to be here in the very near future. Until then they tried to encourage regular cleanings. There is a new dentist in town that can provide these services.
