Make a trip that impacts oral health long after your week of service.
Considering a dental volunteer trip?
Our turn-key approach to dental outreach redefines humanitarian dentistry.
Don't worry we will never spam your inbox.
We have dental clinics in areas of great need waiting for you.
Year-round Dental Volunteer Outreach
We have trips every week.
A typical week includes four (4) days of clinical work Monday-Thursday together with a local team that supports your week of service.
All volunteers stay in the city of Antigua, Guatemala. There are a multitude of shops and restaurants in this charming town which are easy to walk to, and if you arrive early or extend your stay, you can also enjoy cultural experiences throughout the area.
The total travel cost averages $1,800 per traveler, plus a donation toward supplies & equipment.
