Dental Volunteer Abroad Quests

Dental professionals of all kinds are needed to collaborate with local communities and provide vital oral health services to children and adults. Countless individuals lack access to even the most basic oral hygiene resources. Volunteers are needed to train people on how to care for their teeth (brushing, flossing); hygienists and dentists are able to help with serious dental problems that cause pain and illness.

Contribute your time in a meaningful way to the global community, while honing vital and valuable skills.
