Travel Dentistry Nepal welcomes volunteer dentists, hygienists, and dental assistants to join our volunteer teams travelling to beautiful country Nepal.
Travel Dentistry Nepal mission is to provide dental care and oral health education to local communities and children’s with little access to a dentist and dental treatment. In partnership with local organizations, field clinics are set up at schools and municipal facilities,.
In these clinics, children and local peoples receive an examination of oral cavity, restorations and extractions as needed, a cleaning when possible, a fluoride treatment, sealants, and oral health instruction. Care is provided primarily to restore permanent teeth, and children are recalled every two years to ensure long-term health.
A typical camp has four to six dentist registered in Nepal Medical Council and is staffed by a volunteer work team of 12-18 people. Camps operate six to eight hours per day according to participation of local peoples and number of school children’s. Between 300 and 500patients are served, depending on how much care each child needs.
Dentists perform exams, restorations, and extractions as needed. Dentists work alongside an assistant who carries out normal chairside duties, including charting as well as instrument and suction support. Some assistants may be highly trained, and some may be relatively new to the role.
