If you are interested in helping provide what the Dental Clinic needs, thank you!  Everything the clinic receives as a tax-deductible in-kind donation lowers the cash operating costs for the clinic. Here is a resource list of items that are always helpful to receive.  Please contact us for details and updated information.

Dental donations coming in to Nicaragua must be approved by the Ministry of Health (MINSA),so the required paperwork must be completed and received by us via email 8 weeks before arrival (effective 2018).  For more information contact:
