Bridge2Aid Dental Volonteer Programme- what we do?

2A Dental Volunteer Programme

The Bridge2Aid Dental Volunteer Programme (DVP) was developed to allow qualified dental professionals to pass on their skills to local health care personnel in Tanzania.

Each 13-day trip has spaces for up to 12 dentists and 8 nurses (or hygienists willing to act as hygienists/nurses) who are willing to work in remote rural clinics developing the skills of Clinical Officers and delivering basic dental services to the community.

We are grateful to the Sunnymead Trust for the use of their manual during the DVP.

We are currently interviewing for our September and November 2011 trips. (A minimum of 1 full year's post-graduate experience for dentist applicants is required). To apply for your place, read on to the bottom of this page! We do sometimes have last minute cancellations, if you'd like to be kept on the waiting list for any future DVP trips then please let us know by emailing Ruth Bowyer.

History of the B2A DVP:

The Bridge2Aid Dental Volunteer Programme was developed in partnership with Dentaid during 2004, and we are very grateful for their support in helping to establish the visits. Since then we have run the programme ourselves.






“Amazing organisation - I have never been on a more organised trip. I look forward to seeing B2A become more successful with each passing year.”





“This has been a rewarding experience both professionally and personally, I have realised how lucky our patients are.”






“I am amazed at what can be achieved in 5 days of clinical officer training.”





“It was so moving and great to be part of a charity working at such a grass roots level.”






“DVP is a bit like Big Brother and CPD all thrown into one!”





“Visiting Bukumbi Village was an experience I will never forget.”
