Mobile Dental Clinic Inside
Dr. Leland is very passionate about providing charitable dentistry for the people of El Salvador. He has fallen in love with the people there and has formed a non-profit corporation called Leland Dental Charities, Inc. In 2009 Dr. Leland purchased a used mobile dental clinic that was retired from service from the U.S. Navy. Dr. Leland and friends have restored this clinic to a modern dental facility on wheels, complete with digital x-rays, a sterilization area and two treatment operatories. The purpose of Leland Dental Charities is to support this mobile dental clinic and the volunteers that will provide the free dental care to the people of El Salvador. We would love for you to be a part of this very important mission. Make it your mission!.

The Purpose of LDC, Inc. is to:
Support the efforts of volunteers providing free dental care to the indigent people of El Salvador who cannot afford dental care in their communities. The particular community targeted for this effort will be in El Cuco, Department of San Miguel, El Salvador, which has an approximate population of 4,000 people. This effort could expand to other communities through the use of a mobile dental van. We will also conduct dental education programs to raise awareness of the importance of personal hygiene to prevent dental caries and periodontal disease.
