Global Dental Relief brings free dental care to impoverished children of Nepal, northern India, Vietnam and Guatemala in partnership with local organizations.
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.Travel and logistics for volunteers are coordinated by Global Dental Expeditions, dedicated to humanitarian journeys to serve children in need.

Our Work
Global Dental hosts volunteer dental clinics in four countries:

* Nepal
* Ladakh, India
* Vietnam
* Guatemala

Since 2001, Global Dental has hosted over 600 dedicated dentists, hygienists, dental assistants and non-medical volunteers. Volunteers have treated over 44,000 children with first time and ongoing dental care.Global Dental recalls each population of children every two years to deliver continuous care. After ten years, we see children returning for their third or fourth visits.The results are clear --extractions are rare, restorations small, and children are aware of the importance of diet and consistent oral hygiene.This is the sustainable legacy we strive to leave with every child we treat.



Help the Children

Global Dental seek dentists, hygienists, dental assistants and non-medical volunteers wishing to extend their workto a global setting.
