Dr. Carl Ferreira of Fall River, MA Provides Dental Work to Hondurans in Need
Fall River, MA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/08/2015 --Dr. Carl Ferreira, Dentist in Fall River, MA is using his professional skills to give back to those in need through the Hands to Honduras Program. Dr. Ferreira regularly visits the Central American country to provide much-needed dental care to residents who don't have access or means to undergo necessary dental procedures. During each visit to Honduras, Dr. Ferreira helps hundreds of patients by examining and extracting decayed and infected teeth.
Honduras is one of the poorest countries in the world and people there have very limited access to basic healthcare needs as well as necessities of life such as shelter, food, and fresh water. The Hands to Honduras Program has been coordinating humanitarian trips with volunteers since 1998, building structures like schools, daycares, and water towers, as well as providing services such as first aid training, health education, and more.
As part of the dental team, Dr. Ferreira helps educate Hondurans about the importance of a good tooth brushing routine in addition to his work with exams and extractions. Tooth decay is rampant in Honduran communities, likely attributed to their excessive consumption of soda. While decayed teeth are painful and unsightly, they can also lead to greater health problems if infection from the tooth reaches the blood stream.
When he's not providing volunteer dental work for Honduran patients, Dr. Ferreira and his staff in Fall River, MA are providing patients with the highest standard of dental care with general and cosmetic dental services. He and his staff offer services such as cleanings, fillings, bridges, and crowns, as well as cosmetic procedures such as veneers, dental implants, and teeth whitening.
