Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
At Global Dental Relief our mission is to bring free dental care to children throughout the world.
Volunteer dentists, hygienists, assistants and non-dental volunteers deliver treatment and preventive care in dental clinics that serve children in schools, orphanages and remote villages.
With a vision to transform lives and cultivate community through volunteerism, GDR provides opportunities for diverse groups of volunteers to explore the world and bring free dental care and oral hygiene education to thousands of impoverished children in Nepal, India, Guatemala, Vietnam, Kenya and Cambodia.
Logistics for volunteers on these projects are coordinated by Global Dental Expeditions.
Global Dental Relief Model of Care
GDR provides preventive care and oral health education to children with little access to a dentist. In partnership with local organizations, field clinics are set up at schools and municipal facilities, with the exception of Kenya, where clinics are held in a local medical center.
In these clinics, children receive an exam, restorations and extractions as needed, a cleaning when possible, a fluoride treatment, sealants and oral health instruction. Care is provided primarily to restore permanent teeth and children are recalled every two years to ensure long term health.
