Our Mission

Our mission is to bring free dental care to the underserved people in Guatemala.

DDS International, is a non-profit faith based organization that was formed to help the less fortunate in Guatemala by relieving pain, treating oral disease, and helping people feel better about themselves.  

Our volunteer team is comprised of dentists, dental students,  and a support staff of assistants, hygienists and interpreters from both countries.  Each of these volunteers donate their time and pay their own expenses to accomplish this mission.

What We Do

Dental Care

Our Mission is to provide free dental care to help the people that we serve. We do this in many ways.

Feeding the Hungry

Starting in 1998, we came to Guatemala with one purpose: to be a help to the people. Follow us through the years.

Dental Education

In addition to free dental care, we also provide food and supplies to the people there who are in need.

Restorative Dentistry

in Action

Our Last Resort

Oral Surgery has played a big part of our ministry from the very beginning. The need for this service in a 3rd world country is indispensable, though we are working to lower the need of it.  In just 4 days of dental care we usually extract several hundred teeth.

Our Permanent Year Round Clinic

Become a part of this project

DDS International has now opened a permanent year clinic run by Kitchen of Love in Esquipulas.  The generous support of one man made this possible.  You can help us to keep this going by making an ongoing monthly donation to help us pay for all operating costs.
