Description

For volunteers studying or practicing dentistry, this program offers a unique opportunity to learn and assist those who need it most on the beautiful island nation of Jamaica. The impoverished in Jamaica are simply unable to afford dentistry, to the great detriment of their health. While there is some access to dental care through the few government-funded centers and hospitals available, transportation issues and cost can prove problematic. Those who can access the government system find it is overburdened, understaffed and lacking sufficient resources.

This amazing program puts dentistry care into impoverished communities to ensure it’s getting to those who need it most.

Volunteers should have completed at least one year of dental school (to observe only), while those with two or more years of study can access practical work opportunities at the discretion of partners. This volunteering program is a perfect learning occasion for students or those thinking about a career in dentistry, giving them wonderful observation and support experience.
