Description

Global Dental is excited by its partnership with the Kikuyu Hospital Dental Clinic, located in the hills outside of Nairobi, Kenya. We will be working in a fully equipped clinic built in 2006. Following each clinic, volunteers may choose to participate in a four-day safari in renowned Maasai Mara National Park.

Picturesque acacia trees surround the hospital compound that is home to our dental clinic. Perched in the hills outside Nairobi, Karen offers respite from the congestion and pollution of the capital city. Volunteers walk from their guesthouse to the dental clinic each day, passing hundreds of children clad in brown and white uniforms walking to school. Following our public health model, children receive a full range of dental services and oral hygiene education. In this way, volunteers can help provide first time access to care in a country which has 700 dentists to serve a population over 40 million.

Qualifications

There are no special qualifications for general volunteers for this project. General volunteers will help to run the clinic, manage patient lines, provide oral hygiene instruction, assist a dentist (if interested) and manage the master records for the clinic.
