Brazilian Dentist Travels To Treat The Teeth Of Poor People For Free And Here Are 30 Transformations

Category : travel

Everybody can be an everyday superhero, no matter their profession. The perfect example that illustrates that this adage is practical, not just theoretical, is Brazilian dentist Felipe Rossi. He founded the NGO Por1sorriso and travels the world, bringing back smiles to some of the poorest people on the planet. He and his colleagues fix low-income individuals’ teeth for free.
We’ve collected some of the inspiring and beautiful photos showing how people looked before Rossi reached out to help them, and how they looked afterward. The pictures show just how much dentists can help restore people’s confidence and give them hope to live their lives and aim higher.
Get ready to smile. A lot. Upvote the photos that left an impression on you and leave a comment telling us what you think of Rossi’s incredible charity. And if any of you Pandas are on the fence about becoming dentists, we hope that this post helps you decide that it’s a worthwhile calling.

The well-known doctor, like most people, wants to spread goodness to his loved ones, his community, his country, as well as the planet. And his desire to do good has already had a large positive impact in low-income communities not only in Brazil, but also Kenya, Mozambique, and elsewhere.Rossi’s philosophy is to help those who don’t have the means to get help themselves. That’s why he doesn’t charge the people that he helps. “This assistance is very different from projects where people simply get toothbrushes and toothpaste,” the dentist wrote on his Instagram account.#4Image credits: drfeliperossi#5Image credits: drfeliperossi#6Image credits: drfeliperossiAccording to R7, there are over 4,000 volunteers registered in the NGO’s database. The reality, however, is much different. “There are costs that people have to bear and, with that, many people end up giving up on the action,” Rossi explained that wanting to help and actually helping are two very different things. He also mentioned that on missions he and his team usually transport around two tons of equipment.#7Image credits: drfeliperossi#8Image credits: drfeliperossi#9Image credits: drfeliperossiGood oral health is more important than you’d think. It’s one of the things that can help you lead a healthy life or make you be prone to constant illness. But let’s say that you were in a helicopter crash and there’s some evil force after you: how would you go about taking care of your gleaming pearls when you’re lost in the middle of nowhere, without a dentist (let alone a toothbrush) in sight?Well, Know Prepare Survive suggests that oral hygiene is important in the wilderness and you can keep your mouth, teeth, and tongue clean using a willow brush. Just cut off the end of a branch and use it as a toothbrush. The sap will eliminate tartar and stop it building up near your gum line, thus preventing cavities. Being in a life-or-death situation is not an excuse to stop brushing your teeth.#10Image credits: drfeliperossi#11Image credits: drfeliperossi#12Image credits: drfeliperossi#13Image credits: drfeliperossi#14Image credits: drfeliperossi#15Image credits: drfeliperossi#16Image credits: drfeliperossi#17Image credits: drfeliperossi#18Image credits: drfeliperossi#19Image credits: drfeliperossi#20Image credits: drfeliperossi#21Image credits: drfeliperossi#22Image credits: drfeliperossi#23Image credits: drfeliperossi#24Image credits: drfeliperossi#25Image credits: drfeliperossi#26Image credits: drfeliperossi#27Image credits: drfeliperossi#28Image credits: drfeliperossi#29Image credits: drfeliperossi#30Image credits: drfeliperossi
