Dental Clinic Ministry

I want to share with you the heart of someone who grew up in Centro Cristiano Cofradia since he was really small. He participated in our youth ministry as a student, as a leader, was a Capitan in our RETO outreach for a number of years, and was part of our worship band as well. He went to Tepic (the capital city of Nayarit) after finishing High School to study Dentistry and is now a practicing Dentist in Tuxpan, a town near Cofradia. He serves in Cofradia on the weekends to help many people who, economically, cannot afford to make the trip in to town nor pay the price Dentists charge in town.

Let me introduce to you someone I'm very proud of! Dr. Pedro Salaiza...

Hello, brothers and sisters. My name is Pedro Salaiza Vega, and I am the dentist in charge of the dental clinic ministry under the Christian Mission in Cofradía.

I want to thank you on behalf of all the people who have been blessed by the dental services that have been made availalbe to them over the years through this ministry. Those services are offered at significantly discounted rates and with the added benefit of not having to deal with the burden of travling to distant locations in order to receive exams and treatment.

For quite some time now many of the tools and aparatuses that were originally donated to the clinic have been deemed obsolete or simply no longer function. They are no longer useful, and it is time to replace them.

Therefore, I write to you today to request your help so that this ministry may continue being a blessing to the villages and towns that surround us. We need to update the clinic with good quality equipment in order to provide good quality dental services. The equipment we need is as follows (US DOLLARS):

·      Dental Chair ($3,050)

·      Sterilizer ($735)

·      Oil-free Compressor ($550)

·      High/los handpieces ($395)

·      Reamer for dental cleanings ($235)

·      Light curing lamp ($205)

·      X-Ray machine ($2000)

The estimated total for these clinic updates is $7,170. There are, however, more updates that will be needed to get the clinic tools and materials ompletely up to date so that we can provide the best service possible.

I thank you in advance for being a blessing in Cofradía. We love you, and you are always welcome here in Mexico.

May God bless you all.
