Ashoka Fellow
    This description of Edgar Martinez's work was prepared when Edgar Martinez was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2013.
    Edgar Martínez is redefining dental clinics, particularly in rural and low-income communities, by proactively intervening in schools and communities to teach dental hygiene. Edgar thereby reduces the need for extensive dental care and makes high-quality dental care more accessible through his franchise network of low-cost dental clinics located in poor rural areas.
