Mission: Afghanistan has only one dentist for 250,000 population, and in rural areas no care is accessible. People are dying from multiple abscessed teeth, while 3,000,000 orphans have no opportunity for technical training. ADRP's program is to improve the infrastructure in dentistry through establishing clinics and providing dental technology training in Afghanistan.
