Dentistry in Kenya

Volunteer Dentistry Projects in Kenya

If you are considering volunteering in the field of Dentistry abroad, then Kenya could be a good option for you. Projects Abroad volunteers work in a dentistry department, which is attached to a local hospital in the town of Nakuru. During your placement you will learn a lot about the dental profession and how it works in a developing country.

Dentistry volunteers will get a unique insight into various procedures including tooth extractions and root canal fillings. Your role will be to observe the dentist and their staff throughout the day. By shadowing the staff, you will have the opportunity to ask questions and review cases. If you have dental experience and are enthusiastic and willing, you may be given more to do. This could be helping set up the instruments for the dentists, and assisting them while they treat patients.

If you are pro-active and organised, you could help facilitate an outreach programme. This could involve visiting schools and orphanages to promoting the importance of oral hygiene to the children. Projects Abroad will be able to help you set this up.

Whilst volunteering in Kenya you will stay with a local host family allowing you to experience the Kenyan culture first hand. You will also have access to our vibrant Projects Abroad volunteer community who you can spend time with when you are not at work. Nakuru is a small but bustling town with plenty to see and do nearby.

You can read more detailed information about the aims of the project in our Kenya Medicine & Healthcare Management Plan.

All volunteers taking part on any project in Kenya now have the opportunity to add a 1 Week Conservation Add-On to the end of their main placement. For more information visit our Conservation in Kenya project page.
