Spend time in Mexico through our volunteer or internship program combined with cultural immersion. You will gain valuable experience in a modern, industrialized country boasting of rich historical heritage.

The placement will be in a dental department at a hospital in Guadalajara, and you will work as a dentistry intern alongside skilled local dentists and doctors. Facilities are generally of decent standards, on a par with many hospitals in the west. The department is busy and usually full, so expect to observe and assist with several procedures. The amount of responsibility given to you will depend largely on your qualifications, training, and experience.

Whether you are a pre-med student or already have sufficient experience, we are eager for your presence in our program in Mexico. No matter your level of knowledge, you will be a great asset if you show enthusiasm and a willingness to learn. If you take initiative and build rapport with teammates, you might get the chance to become directly involved with dental procedures and treatments.


Mexico is a beautiful country, and a great place to spend time on a volunteer program or internship. Mexico is a real meeting-place of cultures: a modern, industrialized and well-educated country that's full of history. American, Spanish and Indian influences all come together to make it a fascinating place that mixes developed and developing worlds. Mexico is a mixture of wealth and poverty, and offers amazing opportunities for volunteers to learn and travel within its expansive borders.
