The Dental Day was made possible by the efforts  of the organizations of missionary dentists of Puerto Rico, the Church of God of Planes de la Laguna and New Acropolis El Salvador. During three days, more than 200 low-income people received dental care, from the Planes de la Laguna canton, municipality of Santa Ana (in the basin of Lake Coatepeque).

The care provided by the 17 Puerto Rico volunteers – 8 of whom were dentists and 2 dental assistants – was in the form of talks on oral health, fillings in cases of tooth decay, dental extractions, dental cleanings and preventive oral cancer check-ups.

Also, toothbrushes and toothpaste, clothing and toys were donated to the children served. The Care Center operated in the facilities of the Church of God Planes de la Laguna and received the support of the Pastor and parishioners of the Church. New Acropolis helped with all the logistics, legal procedures and permits, lodging, and operational coordination of the event.

New Acropolis Santa Tecla organized “The Game of Life” with the objective of recreating for participants a playful space of coexistence and reflection on relevant themes such as leadership, values, conflict management, creating an inner space, our role in the change that we want to see in the world, etc.

This challenge consisted of a philosophical rally, a circuit of 4 challenges/tests that needed to be overcome to move to the next station and complete the race. Overcoming challenges required teamwork and were based on the teachings of great thinkers and philosophers of history, so that each passed test held a key of wisdom to be applied to daily life.
