Mission: Global Dental Relief brings free dental care to impoverished children of Nepal, northern India, Guatemala, Kenya and Cambodia. Volunteer dentists, hygienists, assistants and non-medical volunteers deliver treatment and preventive care in dental clinics that serve children in schools, orphanages and remote villages. Dental clinics are rich, demanding and rewarding experiences. Volunteers work in basic conditions. Dentists use portable dental units to provide exams, extractions and restorative care. Hygienists offer oral hygiene education and first-time cleanings for children. Essential to a successful clinic, non-medical volunteers manage the lines of patients, assist in record keeping, keep track of children and help with instruments and charting. Volunteers are moved by the sense of service, and by the gratitude they receive from the children themselves. Following the clinic, volunteers may choose to participate in an optional sightseeing itinerary to better immerse themselves in the host culture.
