Mission Statement

Global Dental Relief brings free dental care to impoverished children of Nepal, northern India, Vietnam and Guatemala in partnership with local organizations.

Volunteer dentists, hygienists, assistants and non-medical volunteers deliver treatment and preventive care in dental clinics that serve children in schools, orphanages and remote villages.

Description

Volunteer in an intensive week-long dental clinic in:

  • Nepal
  • Ladakh, India
  • Vietnam
  • Guatemala

Dental clinics are rich, demanding and rewarding. Volunteer dentists and hygienists work in basic conditions.

Dentists use portable dental units to provide exams, extractions and restorative care. Hygienists offer oral hygiene education and first time cleaning for children.

Essential to a successful clinic, non-medical volunteers manage the lines of patients, assist in record keeping, keep track of children and help with instruments and charting.

Volunteers are moved by the sense of service, and by how much more they receive from the children themselves.

Following the clinic, volunteers may join an optional trek or cultural tour of local sights.
