Dental services begin at Yotkom
This November we are excited to be able to commence a dental service to the community .
The area we service has a population of over 300,000 and people with tooth ache and decay suffer so much without skilled interventions. The Yotkom Medical centre has employed Godfrey as a dentist and Annette as a dental assistant . We have set up a well equipped basic facility and plan to expand this.
In 2018, a dentist from Australia has indicated a willingness to come to Kitgum and assist with ongoing mentoring and teaching.
We believe this is a significant leap forward in our mission to bring wholistic high quality health care to northern Uganda.
