Description

Join RSVP in Jamaica where you’ll help address healthcare issues, including the inability and lack of quality access to dental care among disadvantaged people in the Caribbean. As a volunteer in the Dentistry Program, you’ll educate communities about the importance of dental health by providing workshops and basic services - tooth extraction, examinations, fluoride applications, etc. You’ll work alongside locally trained dental hygienists and dentists, enabling you to learn about local methods.

The minimum duration is two weeks, and there are specific requirements for this program:
- Volunteers should have completed at least one year of dental school, while persons with two or more years of study can access practical work opportunities at the discretion of partners.
- Professionals will be asked to register with the Dental Council of Jamaica to carry out practical work. RSVP Caribbean offers guidance through the simple registration process.
- Dental students, dental assistants, dental hygienists, and dentists can volunteer at a health centre in Jamaica. Dental students will only be able to observe.
