    Dental care for people in Kenya

    Our dental units are located in rural areas of western Kenya and the slums in the cities Nairobi and Nakuru. They are equipped with new air-controlled treatment units. The dental treatment spectrum includes conserving treatments, prophylaxis and dental surgery.
    An important addition everyday work in the dental practices are mobile outreach programs in remote areas. All necessary instruments and equipment such as a mobile treatment unit, autoclave and generator are packed and brought to the site by our team. These outreach programs are usually attended by a lot of patients and thus so that mainly pain treatments are carried out. Patients will then have the opportunity to visit the closest dental unit for further treatment.

    Unsere Zahnstationen in Kenia

    Unsere Zahnarztpraxen sind in den ländlichen Regionen Westkenias und den Slums der Großstädte Nairobi und Nakuru gelegen und mit neuen, luftgesteuerten Behandlungseinheiten ausgestattet. Das zahnmedizinische Behandlungsspektrum umfasst konservierende Behandlungsmaßnahmen, Prophylaxe und zahnärztliche Chirurgie.
    Neben der Arbeit in den Zahnarztpraxen ist der Arbeitsalltag in Kenia durch mobile Einsätze in entlegenen Regionen geprägt, die mehrmals wöchentlich stattfinden. Alle notwendigen Instrumente und Gerätschaften wie mobile Behandlungseinheit, Autoklav und Generator werden dazu eingepackt und gemeinsam mit dem Behandlungsteam zum Einsatzort gebracht. In der Regel besteht dort hoher Behandlungsbedarf, so dass vor allem Schmerzbehandlungen durchgeführt werden. Die Patienten haben dann die Möglichkeit zur Weiterbehandlung die Zahnstationen aufzusuchen.
