DynCorp International team members volunteered their free time to help organize and host a dental care workshop at Soto Cano Air Base in Honduras. DI’s team brought in six dentists from the Honduran School of Dentistry in Tegucigalpa to provide dental exams, evaluations, conduct sessions on dental care and oral hygiene, all free of charge to personnel on base.
Each “patient” was given one-on-one treatment and received a dentist’s written evaluation and recommendations for future care.
“Access to medical care can be expensive and also hard to obtain in this area. By bringing the dental professionals in-house, we are able to ensure that those on base are given the proper education on dental practices and can be proactive about their health,” said Noema Reyes, DynCorp International executive assistant.
“Tying into DI’s overall health and wellness initiative, Healthy Outcomes, we think it is important to provide these valuable services to those we serve, as well as our own team members,” said DynCorp International program manager, Arturo Buxo.
