About

Jean Paul, a dental hygienist who moved to the USA from Haiti at the age of 21 and is now getting his undergraduate degree, is passionate about bringing better dental care to children in Haiti.  He is addressing tooth decay in Haiti by bringing dental supplies, volunteer dentists, and education to primary schools, where the teachers are included in the prevention training to ensure long-term follow through.  With an initial donation of dental supplies and a strong network of dental professionals interested in his service mission, Jean Paul can help the children at a school he has already identified and also scale his program over time.  He believes that he can prove this model in Haiti and grow to other countries as well.
