Ghana Donation

DentalEZ® Integrated Solutions is proud to support dental charitable organizations. This includes donations of StarDental® handpieces to Montana Dental Outreach Teams, an organization that supplies dentistry to children and adults living in poverty, free of charge. The group most recently traveled overseas to Ghana in December 2017.

Founded in 2004, this nonprofit was created by Dr. Tom Bartoletti, a Sheridan-based dentist. Since it’s beginning, the Montana Dental Outreach Teams have completed 27 outreaches to date, providing dental care to countries all around the world. For the trip to Ghana, the professional dentists and staff of Montana Dental Outreach were joined by a team of students who helped clean teeth, fill cavities, and provide additional dental care for orphans at the Nazareth Home for God’s Children. Although dental supply companies sometimes donate materials to this group for their use abroad, much of the supplies come from Bartoletti’s personal office.

In addition to providing dental services to individuals in need, a main goal of the Montana Dental Outreach Teams is the process of mentoring young people. By taking them to places that don’t have adequate dental care, Bartoletti and his team are able to show these students the living conditions in third world countries, thereby opening their eyes to the nature of the world around them. Bartoletti notes that, in order to have a positive and powerful experience on outreaches like this, students must have a passion for humanity, must be flexible, and must be willing to earn a “degree in compassion”. This much is made clear through the mission statement of the Montana Dental Outreach Teams, which states “We seek to foster and discover the joy of helping, giving, and sharing with those in need. Through volunteering and serving, we can find meaning in our lives.”
