Todos Juntos currently operates three dental clinics – ‘Sonrisa I, II and III’ where children receive preventative education about dental hygiene, as well as free treatments and restorative care.
Our Support -The LATA Foundation has supported Todos Juntos with their work with the thousands of children in these slum towns and helping to keep the free clinics up and running.
Further information – The organisation was founded by Fiona Watson in Argentina in 2005 and is registered in both Argentina and the UK.
