Key program components
Through effective dental care (preventive, curative, and rehabilitative), educational outreach, and volunteer activities, PACE seeks to improve the dental health of patients and to encourage the community to embrace the importance of preventive dental maintenance. PACE also aspires to serve as an example for the provision of dental care in the region and eventually achieve financial self-sufficiency. For dental care services, PACE prioritizes students who attend the school, staff members, parents of the school children, and community members, respectively. PACE works with dental patients to educate them on the importance of proper dental care and uses surveys to track the data by asking a variety of questions to all patients both pre and post appointment. With this information, PACE hopes to encourage the community to embrace the importance of preventive dental maintenance. PACE serves 15-20 patients per day.
