Please consider joining Global Dental Relief on an international volunteer trip and see the world as you have never seen it before!

Do you ever find yourself wondering what it might be like to combine your fascination with traveling to far off places and a strong desire to give back to the local community? 

With Global Dental Relief you can put your experience and skills to work to help children live happier healthier lives. GDR offers international volunteer opportunities for both dental and non-dental professionals in India, Nepal, Guatemala, Kenya and Cambodia.

You don’t have to be a dentist to volunteer!

GDR volunteers work in an intensive six day dental clinic to provide treatment, preventive care and oral health education to school age children. Clinics generally include up to five dentists, several hygienists and ten non-medical volunteers. Each clinic treats upwards of 800 children.

Without the help of volunteers, these children live with chronic pain and infection, unable to eat, sleep or concentrate in school.

Volunteering in a GDR clinic is a great way to add meaning to your travels and to make a measurable difference in the lives of children around the world. Volunteers of all ages and background are welcome to join a clinic. GDR volunteers come from all over the U.S. as well as Canada, Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand.  To learn more about Global Dental Relief visit: or call 303-858-8857
