GO ON A DENTAL MISSION
Make a difference – develop your skills set – experience other cultures.
Each year around 50 Scandinavian volunteers travel to our projects in countries around the world. We collaborate with well-established organisations in developing countries on joint projects with a focus on health promotion.
Would you like to go?
Are you a dental professional, or are you currently studying to become one? If so, you can join a dental health mission with Dental Health Without Borders.
You will become part of a community, working together to improve the living conditions for some of the most vulnerable groups in the world! Your professionalism will be challenged daily, and your skills will be put to the test; you will work in a very different context from the one you are used to, and you will often be treating patients under primitive conditions.
At the same time, our dental missions provide a unique opportunity for you to experience different cultures, and to gain a deeper understanding of their daily lives and challenges.
In the field
You and your team will daily provide emergency treatment for the local people, as well as teach them how to brush their teeth and maintain a healthy diet.
This is a key word when talking about Dental Health Without Borders and is why you will be working closely with local dental professionals and organisations, to secure the future of the project. Your work will become a stepping stone for better dental health in the area – even after you have returned home.
Meet former volunteers
You will without a doubt get the best introduction to the life of a dental volunteer from our previous volunteers.
