Turkish Dentists Give Kenyans Back Their Smiles

Turkish dentists are offering free dental care and fostering oral hygiene awareness in Kenya‘s Lamu County in a partnership between Turkey and Kenya aimed at promoting quality healthcare.

Turkish Ambassador to Kenya Ahmet Cemil Miroğlu and Lamu Governor Fahim Yasin Twaha toured the dental health camp Thursday, witnessing first and the hundreds who were treated.

In Kenya, dentists are mostly in big cities, leaving those in rural areas deprived of dental care.
