Dental

Dr. Gerry Dental Center

Please take a moment to learn about our free Dental Clinic and consider how you just might be able to assist us in helping the many so in need of dental care.

Our Dental clinic offers free dental care to all Haitians and Dominicans living on the North Coast of Dominican Republic.

100% of all donations will go directly to support our Dental Clinic.

Raising US$3,000 will fund 1 Dominican dentist to work for 1 year at our Free Dental Clinic.

Charity dollars here on the North Coast of the Dominican Republic come primarily from the ex-pat’s that have made this Country their home, but there are so many underserved people in need that it is increasingly difficult to raise the funds needed here.

We are now having to turn to our home Countries for help.

You can donate to our Clinic by making checks payable to HADAC marking for Dental on bottom of your check and mail it to P.O.BOX 2664 Washington, North Carolina 27889.

Please include your e mail and we will send you a tax receipt and ‘year end’ news letter.

If you would like to donate Dental Supplies to our Clinic, please email our Clinic Coordinator Linda at info@hadac.org for info on where they can be dropped off or delivered to.

Our dental staff and volunteers

Our Dental Clinic is staffed by retired professionally trained volunteers who tirelessly work each Saturday in high heat and humidity to improve the lives of the people we have come to call our neighbors.

We are assisted by the amazing Dominican Dentists, Giancarlo Brache who often travels from Santo Domingo, volunteering his time and his invaluable insights. Paola Garcia who travels every week from Santiago and Vielka Polanco who travels from Puerto Plata each Saturday.

We provide patient transport from the main highway to the Clinic every Saturday for our patients as well as transport for our Dentists.

Volunteers needed

If you are a Dentist that has ever dreamed of gathering a team together and doing some much needed humanitarian work, utilizing our clinic can make this so much easier for you. Please contact our Clinic Coordinator Linda at info@hadac.org for ways we can help make your dream a reality.

Dentist, Hygienist, and Assistants if you are coming to the Puerto Plata area on a vacation and would like to learn more or volunteer on a Saturday, our regular clinic days, please contact Linda at the above email.

If you are living in the area and interested in volunteering at our clinic on Saturdays, we would be honoured to have your help. 

No dental experience but would like to get involved?

If you are coming to the Puerto Plata area or living here and are an energetic, fun loving person with a kind and caring heart; one that has often thought of volunteering, or learning more about our clinic and what we do, please contact Linda.

There are so many areas we could use your help; with triage, filling out charts, sterilization, cleaning and setting up tables, translation.

We are currently looking for someone that is interested in becoming a regular Saturday volunteer in our clinic and will train the right person.

We are also looking for occasional volunteers that don’t feel they can commit to every Saturday, but are interested in helping with painting, gardening, driving, translating or photography when needed.

Volunteering can give your life a completely new meaning!

The rewards are endless in the Hugs, Smiles and Friendships you will make.
