Cuzco Mission Overview 2007

This mission was carried out in the towns of Calca Provence in Cuzco, specifically Chumpe, San Salvador, Lamay and Huama (the tourist zone of the Sacred Valley of the Incas) on June 11 – 15, 2007. The mission team was formed by 10 local and U.S. oral health care professionals, as well as volunteers and 12 students from the National University of San Antonio Abad de Cusco. It is important to note that in addition to the standard dental procedures, atraumatic restorative treatment (ART), dental sealants, and direct restorations were also performed.

PADA has planned to install a complete dental unit with equipment, instruments, and supplies in Huama under community supervision and implement a convention with the National University of San Antonio Abad de Cusco for internship programming and management.
