Description

Whether you are a pre-dentistry student or a professional, International Medical Aid (IMA) offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity in your choice location. We have Global Dentistry Volunteer Placements for pre-dentistry and dental school students as well as dental hygienists and dentists. Together with these experts from around the globe, you will work in a busy healthcare setting. At the same time, you will receive mentoring from our staff of healthcare professionals.

We partner with a huge network of private and public health facilities, allowing you to use your skills for health improvement within local communities while developing further your practical experience. Our goal at IMA is to boost the health of underserved individuals by providing public health education programs and launching mobile hygiene clinics. We focus on dental care, which is less common in the developing world.

The lack of hygiene practices and sanitation infrastructure calls for quality healthcare services, particularly dental, in rural areas. Hence, we work with local leaders to come up with sustainable and ethical community-led initiatives addressing the root cause of illnesses and diseases.
