The dental project in Kabul has completed its new clinic in Kabul, and is now providing modern dental treatment options to patients who can afford to pay for treatment. The new clinic offers patients digital x-rays and modern equipment used in the outside world. The project continues to provide free basic treatment at no cost to over 20,000 poor Afghans each year. In addition, the dental technician school is currently training dental assistants, and soon will be opening a new class of dental laboratory technicians, training students to make porcelain and metal crowns. Soon, we will begin construction of a large full-service dental laboratory school building, in which we will train dental laboratory technicians in all phases of traditional dental prosthesis manufacture. We have all of the equipment now in Kabul, and an instructor/manager to take over this operation. For the first time, Afghan dentists will access crowns, bridges, and dentures made in Afghanistan by Afghan technicians, rather than the poor quality work coming from Pakistan. We expect graduates from this program to establish private laboratories in Afghanistan and allow dentists to use Afghan dental labs for the first time. Our goal is to help develop the technical dental infrastructure within Afghanistan so that Afghans can access dental care; at this time, ninety percent of Afghans cannot access a dentist in their area. If you would like to help, please feel free to donate funds or supplies, or to volunteer at our facility in Kabul. For more information, please contact our head office in Santa Barbara, California. Thank you for your interest.

Dr. Rolfe has recently returned from Afghanistan. He was working at the new Dental Clinic of Kabul that he helped establish. Things are progressing at the clinic well. There are a few people working full time to maintain the center, as well as a full time instructor training the new students. We need your help.

   In January 2009, our volunteer center in Kabul opened. With seven bedrooms and complete utilities, we will be able to host many volunteers in complete comfort and security. In November 2008, our clinic arrived in Kabul, along with 120,000 pounds of dental equipment and supplies and was installed on land next-door to the volunteer center.
