Ninety percent of Afghans cannot access dental care in their area and often die due to chronic infections. The AFGHANISTAN DENTAL RELIEF PROJECT transforms underprivileged young Afghans into highly trained technicians, dental hygienists and assistants who then provide dental services to the poor at its facility in Kabul. The facility, which includes a seven-chair clinic, treats over 20,000 Afghans a year for free.
