DONATED NEW EQUIPMENT RECEIVED BY MUHAS SCHOOL OF DENTISTRY FOR THE GRADUATE CLINIC
NEW YORK, NY, May 18, 2020 –The Muhimbili University of Health and Allied Sciences (MUHAS) School of Dentistry received new dental equipment for a new Faculty and Graduate clinic, expanding the school’s ability to care for more patients and provide more specialized treatment. The container was shipped from the USA and carried vital equipment, including dental chair units, cabinetry, and computers.
Team members from MCW’s affiliate organization, MC-Tanzania, were present to witness the arrival and unloading of donations, which were safely unpacked from the container and placed in the dental school’s storage room in preparation for the installation. The new equipment will support a more effective structure to deliver dental services at the school. The donation will enable the school to provide services that concentrate on patients with private insurance separate from MUHAS’ general public clinics. Dental amenities and specialized care will improve with the high-tech equipment. The new equipment will support the dental school with additional income while supporting faculty and graduate students with additional opportunities to practice dentistry.
The donation of new equipment to MUHAS marks the fourth phase of support from MCW Global, with the first phase dating back to 2007. Previous phases included upgrades and renovations to all of the dental school’s clinics, critical training, and dental equipment.
