Jordan Mission 2017

In Jordan’s Azraq and Za’atari Syrian refugee camps, nearly 90% of all residents suffer from cavities or other oral health complications.

In September 2017, the Project Turquoise team and five general dentists and specialists from the Washington, DC area, joined a week-long dental mission, treating patients in both camps. We were delighted to be among this team providing oral surgical care to those in need.

Thanks to the Relief International’s partnership with international Medical Corps (IMC) and the Arabian Medical Corps (AMC) in Jordan, the Project Turquoise team, together with the Jordanian volunteer dentists, were able to to successfully treat over 650 patients on this inagural service trip.
