"POR UNA MEJOR SONRISA" / "FOR A BETTER SMILE"
30 years ago the Dr. Óscar Rodríguez Villarreal and the Dr. Evangelina Juárez Ibarra, noticed the difficulties that came while treating dental issues in children with different capacities, thus they committed to create a campaign to evaluate this children's dental health and treat them.
Our objectives include the following:
-Improve the quality of life of patients with impairments.
-Improve their physiognomy and their intrafamiliar relationship.
-Educate the family members in their child's special oral care.
-Educate medical, dental and nursing staff in the surgical handling of these patients.
As we are the only pediatrics Hospital in the region, and our Operation Room was equipped three decades ago for this type of patients.
We have two Federal Accreditations:
+Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (UCIN)
*These are national qualifications that give us the opportunity to treat patients from any other state.
Our most common procedures in dental surgery include:
Dental cavities- dental fillings with resin and/or glass ionomers- Abscesses and/or pulpitis - Pulpotomy y pulpectomy in permanent teeth, endodontics, tooth fractures, oral rehabilitation - Dental crowns.
All of this just for children with different impairments such as Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy and Autism. We also treat children from the Oncohematology Department, as well as those from other medical units that lack the experience in the procedure and handling of these kind of patients.
As we schedule 48 patients each year with an average expense of $ 1,019.04 USD, it means an annual saving of $ 48,914.28 USD.
The investment cost for updating the Operating Room's equipment is $ 32,113.45 USD.
If the saving per year is $ 48,914.28 USD, this means that $ 32,113.45 USD / $ 48,914.28 USD = 0.65 years = 8 months.
The average life the aforementioned equipment is of 240 months (20 years).
