Dental Hygienist Brings Smiles To Ghana’s Kids

Each year Heather Lonergan takes her vacation in Ghana, taking dental care products with her to help kids with oral hygiene as most have never seen a toothbrush in their lives before!

Her month-long trip is spent visiting village schools to educate the children about the importance of dental care, how to look after teeth correctly, and to give out the toothbrushes, mouthwash, etc., to the kids.

Some dentists donate various dental supplies and local churches have collected funds also, but Lonergan pays her own vacation expenses.

During the last trip to Ghana, over 1000 children were helped from local schools and villages.
