SIMPLIFIED DENTAL CARE
A GENTLE APPROACH

No scary needles or drills

Great with kids!

  

We teach the A.R.T. (Atraumatic Restorative Treatment) technique of treating decayed teeth. It is growing in popularity globally and endorsed by the W.H.O.

 

A.R.T. is a slow and gentle technique that is well tolerated by the most fearful of patients. It is more comfortable than standard techniques. No injections or powered drills are needed. Young children do very well with it.

 

A.R.T. is

Testimonies.jpg

From the moment I heard about the concept of this training, I was convinced that this is the kind of training I would like to offer my students. 

This summer we had the privilege of jointly offering “Fundamentals of Indigenous Dental Care” at the Center for Integral Mission in Oklahoma. 
The training proved that my prediction was right; it was fulfilled beyond my expectations. I decided to offer this course every year to our students and plan to explore how to expand this training opportunity to my students who serve overseas.

This course is very thorough and the trainer is very dedicated to make sure every step goes right. I recommend this course without any reservation.

Gerry is an experienced field missionary and has developed this quick and inexpensive and on-the-job dental training that is truly making a difference in wedging open closed doors for Christ and the gospel.

Basic dental care enables us to temporarily by-pass language and cultural barriers so we can practically demonstrate the love of Christ from day one. 

Dental Training For Missions with Gerry Beauchemin is an important tool in our missionary tool chest.
