Trinity Dental Clinic Breaks New Ground
On August 27, 2018, ELWA’s Trinity Dental Clinic broke ground for a new facility at the ELWA Hospital, conveniently located adjacent to the out-patient department. Construction of the new clinic, expected to open by mid-2019, is sponsored by Samaritan’s Purse. The lead “ground-breaker” was TDC manager Eddie Maquie, who left a few days later for Kenya, where he will study to be a fully-trained dentist. In the meantime, Drs. Simon Stretton-Downes and Melvina Piaget will hold down the fort, with the help dental therapist Matilda Dorgbah and the great TDC staff. With so few dental care providers in Liberia, the growth of Trinity Dental is an important enhancement to the healthcare services available at ELWA.
