Pop Wuj Inaugurates New Dental Clinic

After six months of comparing prices and doing research, Pop Wuj recently purchased equipment for a brand new dental clinic serving the low income population that the association serves. During the week of June 26th Pop Wuj inaugurated the dental clinic by filling cavities of its first patients. 

Before the dental clinic Pop Wuj worked with a dentist though he was only able to pull teeth due to a lack of space and equipment. With the inauguration of the new clinic the dentist will attend two days a week instead of one and will able to fill cavities, do cleanings, and extractions.  It will also help improve dental hygiene in the population through preventative education and providing floss, toothpaste, and toothbrushes to patients.   

The low costs of the services in the dental clinic (extractions will cost 10Q, cleaning 50Q, and fillings 60Q) ensure better access to dental care for those who could otherwise not afford it.
