Introduction
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.
