The Maasai Dental Clinic was established by Dr. Ray and Gail Damazo adjacent to the world-famous Maasai Mara National Game Park in Kenya, East Africa. The Maasai Dental Clinic is sponsored and funded by WHDO, a US non-profit humanitarian organization.
Located in a vastly underserved area, the clinic is for the benefit of the 50,000 Maasai people.
The clinic has provided free dentistry on the Mara since 2008. It has been served by licensed dentists and hygienists from all over the world, driven by passion to “give back.” Volunteer Dr. Brian Griffith says, “It was absolutely my pleasure to be at the clinic for 5 weeks. I’ve traveled a lot and it was the best experience ever. It almost feels like home!” He’s returned 3 times.
