Who we are

LAOHALatin American Oral Health Association is a non-profit, philanthropic association focused on evidence-based research and practice.

Our goal is to pursue cutting-edge educational and scientific research by training, at the doctoral level, dental graduates in Latin America and other countries. The professionals we support are highly motivated, recognized for their excellence and leadership who, due to geographical and/or financial reasons, are unable to expand their studies in their own regions.
