Adekemi Adeniyan – Mobile Dental Camp Clinic
Adekemi Adeniyan is the founder of Dentalcare Foundation, an organization that provides free oral health education and treatments to orphans, children and adults in rural area. The burdens of oral health diseases are high in rural communities, such as Ekiti, Nigeria, with surveys demonstrating that 92% of children in such places have never visited a dentist and many are unaware of oral health.
Eighty percent of individuals in Nigeria lack access to oral health care service, thus Adekemi started the Mobile Dental Camp Clinic, which provides free oral health education, treatments and toothbrushes in five rural communities in Ekiti State.
A grant from The Pollination Project will help them secure equipment and instruments needed to carry out the outreach.
