COVID-19 Update
Sadly the ongoing uncertainty about global travel due to coronavirus has forced us to postpone our 2021 overseas volunteering trips.

Where will dentistry take you?

Dentaid Overseas Volunteering Experiences offer an incredible opportunity for UK dental professionals to use their skills in other parts of the world. Working as part of a team, you’ll treat hundreds of people who have no other access to dental care. Most volunteering trips are one or two weeks long and you’ll work alongside local dentists to run dental clinics in prisons, orphanages, refugee camps, community centres, churches, slum areas and remote villages.
If  you would like to volunteer with Dentaid closer to home, we have a range of volunteering opportunities in the UK on our mobile dental units, providing emergency dental care for homeless and vulnerable people.

Sadly COVID-19 has forced us to suspend our overseas volunteering programme and our planned trips for 2021 have been postponed. We plan to resume our trips when it is safe to do so. Email jac@dentaid.org to express your interest.
